This virtual exhibition walk-through was conducted via Zoom.
Featuring the premiere of a new film and other new works, Jill Magid’s Tender: Balance at the Renaissance Society thinks about the circulation of pennies, against the backdrop of the pandemic, and measures of absence and loss. With dimensions that are both intimate and observant of larger systems around us, this exhibition both parallels and builds on a monumental but nearly invisible public artwork that Magid began in New York in fall 2020.
On Monday, April 12, curator Karsten Lund leads a virtual walk-through of the exhibition, navigating immersive 3D documentation of the gallery space and discussing the works in the show, their installation at the Ren, and broader conceptual threads running through Magid’s practice.
Live captioning was available for this event.
Organized in conjunction with EXPO Chicago.
