In conjunction with his MoMA exhibition Projects 97: Mark Boulos, artist and filmmaker Mark Boulos (b. 1975), will join us to discuss his practice. Boulos’s work explores beliefs that are held with such transcendent fervor that they are capable of transforming one’s perception of the world. Focusing on political and religious conviction, he investigates the processes through which ideas take material form in day-to-day society. Using this approach, Boulos has conducted firsthand research by observing such radical political organizations as the Philippine revolutionary New People’s Army and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND). Boulos’s experience living with this latter group, who fight the exploitation of the Niger Delta by large oil corporations, is explored in his video installation All That Is Solid Melts into Air (2008), which will be on view in MoMA’s Projects gallery through July 16.
