Bouchra Khalili celebrated by FACE Fondation
The FACE Foundation has just announced the 2020 laureates for its Étant donnés Contemporary Art Fund. Of the 15 grantees, Bouchra Khalili is involved in two upcoming projects.
Witch Hunt, curated by Connie Butler, is a group show with Bouchra Khalili will be on view at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles from October 4, 2020 through January 10, 2021.
“The exhibition will showcase the work of 15 midcareer artists working in a range of disciplines (sculpture, installation, painting, video, and performance), including the French-Moroccan artist Bouchra Khalili. Witch Hunt will offer a strong feminist perspective— spanning race, class, religion, ethnicity, and geography—and encourage dialogue about some of today’s most urgent issues, ranging from violence against women and transgender people to the right to free speech and protest in a democratic society.”
