My Life In Fiction @ Contemporary

New and Recent Works by Kianga Ford

September 20 - November 23, 2008

The Contemporary Museum is pleased to present MY LIFE IN FICTION., an exhibtion of works by Kianga Ford featuring four newly-commisioned projects. Kianga Ford creates experiential and site-specific works that explore how narratives are constructed, manipulated, and understood in our culture. Her works take the form of sound recordings of short narratives, fragments of personal oral histories, and immersive sound or video environments that create a three-dimensional story experience. Ford’s works engage audiences in an almost cinematic escape, employing some of the conventions of film or theatre while confronting traditional narratives and their historic uses to support social, political, religious, or racial agendas.

Opening Reception 6 - 8 PM Saturday, September 20th
