Guillaume Désanges kicks off the PAMM’s new series of performative lectures and programs in January as part of its new PAMM Researchers-in-Residence program.
About the Residency
With the participation of Cannonball (artist residency program in Miami) the PAMM Researchers-in-Residence program invites cultural actors to South Florida to pursue inquiries relevant to their work, while sharing their process with the public through publications, web projects, installations/artworks, talks, performances, screenings and workshops that are guided by each researcher’s personal practice and points of interest.
Pérez Art Museum Miami’s first Researcher-in-Residence is the independent curator and art critic, Guillaume Désanges, who will present several performative lectures and projects throughout the month of January.

Bouchra Khalili: the third and final chapter of the trilogy The speeches Series. A video trilogy (2012-2013)
The work of Bouchra Khalili - video, installation, photography and works on paper - explores contemporary migration routes and the notion of a clandestine existence through the articulation and exploration of areas of transit, language, and minority discourse.
Bouchra Khalili has participated in numerous international exhibitions, including "Mapping Subjectivity" at MoMA in 2011 and the 10th Sharjah Biennial, also in 2011. That same year in New York and Paris, on this same theme, she presented "You have been there" for the Marian Goodman Gallery as well as "Meeting Points" and " Surveillé (s)."
In 2012, she inaugurated The Art Centre Tarragona with a solo exhibition and participated in the 18th Biennale of Sydney.
She is currently residing in Berlin as part of the "DAAD Artist in Berlin Award". This was the occasion for the showing of “Intense Proximité” where Bouchra Khalili presented a version of Speeches. In this context, she invites exiles to "repeat" fragments of major texts of modern and contemporary political and cultural thought, written by Malcolm X, Abdelkrim El Khattabi, Edouard Glissant … Bouchra Khalili now presents, by the museum’s request, the third and final chapter of the trilogy The speeches Series. A video trilogy (2012-2013).
On view until Feb. 23rd, 2014.
