TANIA BRUGUERA:
ON THE POLITICAL IMAGINARY
 
Tania Bruguera: On the Political Imaginary is the first survey of the artist's interdisciplinary work focusing on the relationship among art, politics, and life.
 
The exhibition features her powerful, innovative installation and performance work created for international venues over the past twenty years and will include multiple daily performances throughout the run of the show.

The artist combines personal experience with a broad social and historical perspective to explore a range of issues including exile, displacement, endurance, and survival to create ephemeral, experiential works that are strongly visceral and highly poetic. Bruguera is the first recipient of the Roy R. Neuberger Prize awarded to an artist for an early career survey and catalogue.
