From the Event Organizer:
Martine Syms (b. 1988, Los Angeles, CA; lives in Los Angeles, CA) is widely recognized for a multidisciplinary practice that reflects on contemporary visual culture with humor and biting social commentary. This solo exhibition features Syms’s She Mad series, an ongoing conceptual project that takes the form of a semi-autobiographical sitcom about a young woman trying to make it as an artist in Los Angeles. Drawing from a range of sources including early cinema, television shows, advertisements, and internet memes, Syms dissects the ways Black experiences are mediated on television, in film, and online. The show marks the US premiere of the fifth and newest episode of She Mad—and the first time that the series is shown in its entirety.
