Martine Syms

American artist Martine Syms uses video and performance to examine representations of blackness in visual culture across generations, geographies, mediums, and traditions. Her research-based practice frequently references and incorporates theoretical models concerning performed or imposed identities, the power of the gesture, and embedded assumptions concerning gender and racial inequalities. Her artwork has been exhibited and screened extensively, including at SLAM | Saint Louis Art Museum, Association of Visual Artists Vienna Secession, Graham Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Serralves Foundation, Museum of Modern Art, Hammer Museum, ICA London, New Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, and The Studio Museum in Harlem, among others.
