New Exhibition: The Magic Lantern @mor charpentier Paris
January 12, 2023
Bouchra Khalili’s first solo show at mor charpentier The Magic Lantern is now open!
The exhibition presents The Magic Lantern Project (2019-2022), a mixed media installation that continues the artist’s investigation on the genealogy of movements of decolonization and international solidarity in the Global South and its diasporas.
Khalili’s work is informed by the history of the Moroccan avantgarde and the oral transmission of suppressed histories. The artist charts the revolutionary impulse by building complex narratives, often weaving together personal and archival footage from historical instances of resistance.
The Magic Lantern is open until February 18, 2023. Don’t miss it!
