🌞🌜Scenes situated in both the reality of every day life and unreal, dreamlike scenarios (like the sun and moon taking a walk together down a dusty lane) come together in artist #GauriGill's photographs. Acts of Appearance features papier-mâché artists and local community members wearing handmade, whimsical masks against the backdrop of their home and culture in rural India. Swipe for a selection of works and see them in person before the exhibition closes on September 3. Learn more at mo.ma/gaurigill.

👀 Omar-S: "Move to Detroit. You can do what the fuck you want to do.”
...
A Detroit staple and a nearly mythological figure in dance music, Omar-S emerged in the underground techno/house scene in the early 2000s, self-releasing small-batch 12" singles labeled by hand. Now a legend in the genre, he refuses to let go of his unorthodox, maverick spirit. His set this Saturday at #WarmUp2018 is a must-see. Tickets at mo.ma/aug11

Swipe for @zadiexa details 💦 Her “magical garments," are colorful, multilayered textile works that explore contemporary identity construction and performance through cultural sampling, informed by Xa’s own experience within the Asian diaspora. Her intricate, hand-sewn garments stitch together familiar symbols used to identify Asian bodies as ‘other’ (the commodified yin-yang symbol, sword blades, lucky numbers, and ‘monolid’ eyes). Combined with references to music, digital space, fashion, and art history, Xa's work uses a system of personalized semiotics.
...
Now on view in Body Armor, these garments serve as an interconnected installation that navigates the space between costume, painting, and performance. See works by #ZadieXa and three other contemporary artists who are pushing the boundaries of how we construe femininity across a range of cultures, geographies, and generations before the exhibition closes September 9.

Contemporary photographer #GauriGill worked with members of an Adivasi community in rural India on her portrait series Acts of Appearance, featuring local collaborators wearing their handmade masks and enacting scenes from daily life. This photograph of four figures, a donkey, a male overseer, and two women working "is an implication of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, a government scheme intended to provide wages for work to the rural poor. In this context, we read the actor seeming to hover on high as a contractor or government agent, a symbol of class exploitation. In practice, in Indian society, those on the lowest social rung, like the Adivasis, are accorded less value than beasts. It’s a sharp critique of a system that has been built on the edifice of economic slavery." Read more via @hyperallergic at mo.ma/read
