And now, so far in the future
That no one will recognize
Any of my jokes,
Jimmie Durham: And now, so far in the future That no one will recognize Any of my jokes, is an obliquenarrative of Durham’s artistic work, thought and political activism, of his readings, attitudes and positions.
Conceived as a counterpoint to and in dialogue with the retrospective Jimmie Durham: humanity is not a completed project, curated by Kathryn Weir, which simultaneously opens at Madre, the Campania Region’s museum of contemporary art, the exhibition presents sculptures from the Fondazione Morra Greco Collection, poems, writings, objects, prints, photographs, carpets, books, videos, documents… by/of/withJimmie Durham: a reflection on the exhibition as a genre and a common space for sharing aesthetic experience and knowledge.
Graphic design of the poems in the exhibition: Julia Born; Italian translation: Sacha Piersanti.
