Jill Magid / MATRIX 237 - Exhibition Opens
Jill Magid / MATRIX 237
March 20–June 12
Jill Magid’s recent work explores the intersection of governmental power and current events. For MATRIX, Magid considers a shooting at the Texas State Capitol by Fausto Cardenas in relation to Goethe’s Faust, finding in the obvious but ultimately fruitful association similar tragic themes. By turning the gallery into a stage for the reading of Faust, a “closet drama,” the piece engages the larger themes of truth and fiction, language and translation, history and legend, gesture and performance, revelation and redaction, individual and institution.
