Purple Art

[February 29 2016]

A screening and conversation with artist Neïl Beloufa tonight from 7pm at MoMA’s Titus 2 Theater, New York

Screening tonight are the films of Neïl Beloufa, an emerging French-Algerian artist who deftly combines sculpture and moving-image media to create immersive viewing spaces. Shot outside of Mali’s capital city Bamako, Kempiniski (2007) takes Beloufa on a journey where he asked locals to describe the future in the present tense. It will be followed by the U.S. premiere of Data for Desire (2014) and will conclude with Untitled (2010), inspired by a story the artist heard about a house in Algiers, which was abandoned by its wealthy owners during political unrest in the city in the 1990s. Following the screening, Neïl Beloufa and Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator of the Department of Media and Performance Art, will be in conversation. Click here to buy tickets

Neïl Beloufa‘s first New York solo museum exhibition”Projects 102: Neil Beloufa” will be on view at MoMA from March 12 through June 12 2016.
