The Museum of Modern Art announces Projects: Dineo Seshee Bopape, the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in New York, on view in the Museum’s street-level gallery. The central work in this exhibition, the multichannel sound and video installation Lerato laka le a phela le a phela le a phela/My love is alive, is alive, is alive (2022), also incorporates soil, rock, and water.

Known for bringing together video, sound, and organic materials in her often site-specific installations, Bopape considers how social, political, and spiritual histories of the African diaspora inhabit the physical land and waters. Originally commissioned by TBA21–Academy and co-produced with Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan, this site-responsive presentation will be expanded at MoMA to include additional artworks in clay and soil. Projects: Dineo Seshee Bopape is organized by Martha Joseph, The Phyllis Ann and Walter Borten Assistant Curator of Media and Performance.
