This Melbourne Festival, MUMA will bring together for the first time an exquisite pair of artists (along with Alicia Frankovich) for side-by-side exhibitions that tease out their common concerns.
Lili Reynaud-Dewar’s film and expanded installation is inspired by two very different sources: Donna Haraway’s classic 1985 text A Cyborg Manifesto, and the gleaming ‘grills’ sported on the teeth of rappers.
From this curious interplay flow lines of enquiry that reach from aspirational hip-hop to the history of the Civil Rights movement in Memphis, blurring the lines between a body’s interior and exterior and the public and private self.
Complemented by a new live performance to premiere at MUMA during the exhibition opening and a separate lecture performance, Melbourne has a lot to wrap its gums around.
