From the New Museum:

Magenheimer presents a new video installation in the window of the New Museum’s 231 Bowery building. This project is part of a new series of window installations, which relaunches the program the New Museum originally mounted in the 1980s. In conjunction with her window installation, a selection of Magenheimer’s films is also on view as part of the Museum’s ongoing Screen Series. This project is curated by Margot Norton, Curator.

On the occasion of her project, Magenheimer has also completed “Notes on Art and Resistance A–Z,” a downloadable PDF. Written by the artist over the course of the past year, following the 2016 US presidential election, the text comprises a sequence of personal meditations on making art in a time of profound political and social change.

Art and Theft Premiere at the New York Film Festival 

Sara Magenheimer will be premiering her newest video, Art and Theft, as part of Program #4 of the New York Film Festival Projections Program. Magenheimer’s video explores the bounds of narrative and the illusion of received wisdom in the seven minutes and twenty-two seconds it takes to rob a house. Here, images of medieval art, popular cinema, and “live” news reportage speak candidly to the constructedness of all storytelling traditions.

Art and Theft will be screened on:

Saturday, October 7th at the Francesca Beale Theater 

Sunday, October 8th at the Howard Gilman Theater

Tickets are available, here through the NYFF Projection Program site
