Opening Tuesday, November 14th, from 4:15PM - 5:45PM
Jill Magid is a widely celebrated MIT alumna now based in New York City. Her dynamic practice is deeply interrogative, forging intimate relationships within bureaucratic structures—flirting with, seducing, and subverting authority. Her projects probe seemingly impenetrable systems, such as the New York City Police Department, the Dutch Secret Service, surveillance systems, and, most recently, the restricted archive of Mexican architect Luis Barragán. By infiltrating and unsettling powerful institutions, she locates unexpected and rich communities within the structures of bureaucracy.
