Chantal Akerman. From Oct 16th, 2008 through Jan 25th, 2009. Miami Art Museum presents its MAC @ MAM exhibition, this time a solo show by artist Chantal Akerman from October 16th, 2008 through January 25th, 2009. This is the artist’s first major traveling exhibition in the United States. The show will feature video from her documentary series: D’Est retraces a journey from summer to winter, from East Germany, across Poland to Moscow in a compendium of striking images of Eastern Europe in transition.
From the Other Side looks at the plight of Mexican immigrants as they attempt the dangerous crossing from Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico to Douglas, Arizona. Sud captures the tumultuous aftermath of the murder of James Byrd Jr. in Jasper, Texas. Là-Bas is a rare self-reflective piece on Akerman’s Jewish heritage filmed nearly exclusively in her apartment in Tel Aviv.
