Martha Wilson
Staging the Journals

Ends in about 2 months: September 7 → November 9, 2018

Staging the Journals presents a set of photographs and videos reflecting Martha Wilson’s work began in the 1970s; a real pioneer in using performance as an artistic medium in itself, Martha Wilson stages her body, and as an actress would do, grinds and transforms herself, creating multiple self-portraits becoming subversive characters. She creates innovative photographic and video works exploring her female subjectivity through role-playing, costume transformations, and “invasions” of other people’s persona.

Staging the Journals tends to reflect Martha Wilson’s pioneering contribution to conceptual and feminist art, through her subversive approach, as well as her collaborations with other women artists.
