Larissa Sansour is participating in a group exhibition entitled Ideologue at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA), which opened on 5 February and runs until 23 July 2016. The exhibition explores power relationships in both the cultural and political realms, bringing together the work of nine artists who employ humor and hyperbole to address platforms of ideology.
Sansour will present her film A Space Exodus alongside an installation of Palestinauts. Through these works the artist offers a hopeful vision for a Palestinian future by merging references to Neil Armstrong’s moon landing with Stanley Kubrick’s thematic concerns for human evolution and progress.
Extablished in 1931, UMOCA encourages exploration into what it means to exist in today’s world through art that inspires imagination, stimulates thought, and transforms society. The Museum connects people around the contemporary art practice of Utah and beyond to shape an engaged and thoughtful global citizenry.
