Emily Jacir&rsquo\;s intervals will open on March 1 at Alexa nder and Bonin. The exhibition features works from 1998 &ndash\; 2012 which are being exhibited for the first time in the USA. This is Jacir&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition in New York since her 2009 presentation of Material f or a Film at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Lydda Airport at the gall ery. Emily Jacir&rsquo\;s ongoing practice is concerned with silenced histo rical narratives\, resistance\, movement\, and exchange. Books\, libraries and the act of translation recur in many of her projects. The exhibition in cludes a film installation\, photographs\, drawings\, and sculptures.
The installation ex libris\, 2010 &ndash\; 2012\, commissioned and produced by dOCUMENTA (13)\, will occupy the first floor of the gallery. ex libris commemorates the approximately thirty thousand books from Palestinian homes \, libraries\, and institutions that were looted by Israeli authorities in 1948. Six thousand of these books are kept and catalogued at the Jewish Nat ional and University Library in Jerusalem under the designation &ldquo\;A.P .&rdquo\; (Abandoned Property). Jacir photographed these books with her cel l phone during repeated visits to the library over the course of two years. Jacir&rsquo\;s explorations and her subsequent selection of specific image s create an intimate register of fragments and traces. Her work not only ad dresses the looting and destruction of books but also raises questions rega rding repatriation and restitution. For dOCUMENTA (13)\, she also translate d selections of the handwritten inscriptions from the books into German and English and exhibited them on billboards throughout Kassel. On the exterio r of the Zwehrenturm\, one of the inscriptions was presented in each langua ge on three sides of the tower. Additional inscriptions were presented on b illboards sited at the Hauptbahnhof and Murhard Library.
The exhibitio n will also include the video installation ENTRY DENIED (a concert in Jerus alem)\, 2003 a full length concert performed by Austrian nationals Marwan A bado\, Peter Rosmanith\, and Franz Hautzinger. The musicians were slated to give concerts in East Jerusalem and Bethlehem in July of 2002 as part of t he Songs of Freedom concert series\, organized by Yabous Productions. They were unable to perform after Marwan Abado was denied entry at Tel Aviv&rsqu o\;s Ben Gurion airport for &ldquo\;security reasons&rdquo\; on July 20th\, 2002. Jacir asked them to perform the concert\, exactly as it was to have taken place in Jerusalem\, in an empty theater in Vienna without an audienc e.
On the gallery&rsquo\;s second floor there will be a selection of w orks made by Jacir in Paris in 1998 which include drawings\, photographs\, documentation of a performance\, and a sculpture. These small scale works a nd sketches reflect Jacir&rsquo\;s various trajectories.
In conjunctio n with Documentary Fortnight\, Emily Jacir&rsquo\;s two-channel video work Ramallah/New York 2004 &ndash\; 2005\, from the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art will be on view at in the museum&rsquo\;s Ronald S. a nd Jo Carole Lauder Building Lobby. In November\, 2014\, Darat al Funun in Amman will present a survey of Jacir&rsquo\;s work which concentrates on he r film and sound installations\, billboards and interventions.
