Overview

What sorts of relationships and negotiations form around an artist’s legacy? This question formed the core of artist Jill Magid’s inquiry into Mexican architect and Pritzker Prize-winner Luis Barragán (1902–1988). 

For her project based on Barragán’s personal and professional archive and library, Magid explored ownership versus authorship, and the obsessions surrounding the preservation of legacy. Magid's investigations were a re-imaging and re-presentation of material from the archives as determined by their legal status.

At the South London Gallery, Magid considered Barragán alongside Samuel Beckett, an author Barragán admired. Magid staged Beckett’s teleplay Quad and a new performance she composed for the occasion.

Following her performance, an installation of Jill Magid’s teleplay Quartet was on view on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 May from 11am-6pm in the Clore Studio.

Biography
Brooklyn-based, artist and writer Jill Magid forms intimate relationships with systems of power, including police, military, secret service, corporations, and CCTV surveillance. For Magid, power is not a remote condition to contest, but rather something to manipulate – drawing it closer, exploiting its loopholes, engaging it in dialogue, infiltrating its structure, repeating its logic. Alongside solo exhibitions at institutions including Tate Modern, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Berkeley Museum of Art, California; Tate Liverpool; the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam; Yvon Lambert, Paris and New York; Gagosian Gallery, New York; and the Security and Intelligence Agency of the Netherlands, she has received awards from the Fonds Voor Beeldende Kunsten and the Netherland-American Foundation Fellowship Fulbright Grant. Magid has participated in the Liverpool, Bucharest, Singapore, Incheon, and Gothenburg Biennials. She is an Associate of the Art, Design and the Public Domain programme at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University, and a 2013-15 fellow at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics. An adjunct teacher at Cooper Union, Magid is the author of four novellas.
