Bonnefantenmuseum – Kahlil Joseph
The Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht presents until March 25 2018 the solo-exhibition New Suns by Kahlil Joseph. Joseph is an American filmmaker based in Los Angeles. New Suns is his first solo exhibition in Europe.
The exhibition consists of the five films named m.A.A.d., Wizard of the Upper Amazon, Until the Quiet Comes, Wildcat (Aunt Janet) and Alice™. Music is important: sound and image function as each other’s counterparts whilst Joseph explores the history of film and moving image in combination with black music traditions. The title New Suns is based on an epigram of an unfinished book by Octavia Spencer.
The Mondriaan Fund granted the Project Grant Institutes for the solo-exhibition.
