Maryam Jafri’s work is informed by a research based, interdisciplinary process, often marked by a series of narrative experiments sitting at the crossroads of cultural anthropology and conceptual art.

About

This exhibition presents a new staging of Jafri’s Product Recall: An Index of Innovation (2014–15) which combines framed texts and “still life” product photography of unsuccessful food products from the private archives of anonymous food industry figures. This alternative cultural history of industrialized food production in the 20th century reveals how agribusiness and the innovations of laboratory science are implicated in the mass circulation and consumption of everyday commodities. This exhibition marks Jafri’s first solo institutional presentation in the United States.
