FOCUS: Jill Magid
Through March 20, 2022
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
Fort Worth, Texas

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is pleased to present the exhibition “FOCUS: Jill Magid.” Throughout Jill Magid’s career, she has carried out extraordinary tasks for her projects. The Brooklyn-based artist inserts herself into established systems of control to engage them from within. As part of her approach to artmaking, she has trained as a spy, police officer, and journalist to be embedded in Afghanistan. Magid creates space within institutions of power where individual agency can flourish, ultimately destabilizing set rules and regulations in favor of new, more equitable relationships.
