Lawrence Abu Hamdan

MOMA Performances

As part of Lawrence Abu Hamdan: Walled Unwalled and Other Monologues, the Kravis Studio will host a series of ticketed performances by the artist.

MoMA, Floor 4, Studio
The Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio

Air Pressure - Friday 2 June 2023 at 8pm, Saturday 3 June 2023 at 8pm & Sunday 4 June 2023 at 3pm

Air Pressure draws on research, conducted between May 2020 and May 2021, into the aerial soundscape of Lebanon, documenting 2,412 instances of Israeli fighter jets and drones. Through chronological sequencing and live audio processing, the performance analyzes the relationship between background noise and atmospheres of violence. 

Natq - Friday 9 June at 8pm, Saturday 10 June at 9pm, Sunday 11 June at 3pm

In Arabic, natq, meaning “to vocalize,” is also the word that is used to describe speech that has been transmigrated from the living to the dead. In this performance, Abu Hamdan examines the politics of listening to reincarnated testimonies—accounts from witnesses who can testify to long and continuous crimes that leak across generations and threaten the future.

Capacity for all performances is limited and advance registration is required.

Lawrence Abu Hamdan's 'Walled Unwalled and Other Monologues' runs through until 11 June 2023.

Felipe Baeza

Awarded Latinx Artist Fellowship 2023

We are delighted to announce that Felipe Baeza has been awarded a 2023 Latinx Artist Fellowship.

In its third year, the fellowship annually recognises 15 of the most compelling Latinx visual artists working in the United States today.

Administered by the US Latinx Art Forum in collaboration with the New York Foundation for the Arts and supported by the Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation, this award is the first significant prize of its kind and celebrates the plurality and diversity of Latinx artists and aesthetics.

'Using printmaking and collage techniques, I create paintings that help me pursue a radical imagination to enact practices of freedom. I render figures that are in a state of becoming something else, they’re not fixed, they’re free and limitless. The figures in my works are always transforming and adapting to new settings in order to survive and thrive. All of this helps me further explore issues around gender, sexuality, legality, and state-imposed boundaries.' – Felipe Baeza

In Conversation: Unruly Bodies

Saturday, 13 May 2023 4 – 5 pm (GMT-7)

Museum Lecture Hall
The Getty Center
Los Angeles, CA, USA

Felipe Baeza, the Getty Artist in Residence, will be in conversation with Professor Laura Gutiérrez. Their discussion will explore ways that their immigration experiences shaped their creative and scholarly processes, imagination as a mode of survival, and the concept of embodiment in performance and figurative art making.

While at the Getty Research Institute, Baeza and Gutiérrez discovered a shared migration story, having come from Mexico, growing up in Chicago, and then leaving again to pursue their dreams.

Following the conversation, attendees are invited to a reception with the speakers.
