Join us for a screening and discussion with artist Sara Magenheimer and curator Margot Norton. This program is held in conjunction with Magenheimer’s video installation “NOON,” on view in the Storefront Window of the New Museum’s 231 Bowery building from January 24 through April 15, 2018. Working across a range of media, including video, sound, performance, sculpture, collage, and installation, New York–based artist Sara Magenheimer disrupts, manipulates, and defamiliarizes language with bold combinations of image and text.

Recent solo exhibitions include Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Portland, OR (2017); the Kitchen, New York (2017); Art in General in partnership with kim?, Riga, Latvia (2016); the Center for Ongoing Research & Projects (COR&P), Columbus, OH (2016); JOAN, Los Angeles (2015); and Recess, New York (2015). Her works have also been included in the group exhibitions “Body Language,” the High Line, New York (2017); “CCCC (Ceramics Club Cash and Carry),” White Columns, New York (2015); and “Amy Sillman: One Lump or Two,” Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and Aspen Art Museum (2013–14).
