People who have saved this event:



American artist Jill Magid's work is deeply ingrained in her lived experience, exploring and blurring the boundaries between art and life. Through her performance-based practice, Magid seeks intimate relations with structures of authority, the resulting narratives often taking the form of a love story. Authority to Remove, a one-off installation at Tate Modern, offers the viewer a unique opportunity to experience the final chapter of an epic tale. The exhibition includes the neon sculpture I Can Burn Your Face 2008, for which Magid appropriates a slang expression used among spies as a threat to expose another agent's identity.
