Opening: Keioui Keijaun Thomas: Magma & Pearls

October 20, 7:00 pm9:00 pm

Free

Magma & Pearls: Oceans Rise and Fall Like Meteorites is the first solo museum exhibition by artist and performer Keioui Keijaun Thomas that expands on her ongoing practice of world-building to create spaces of safety, joy, and healing. Transforming MOCA’s Great Hall into a speculative, post-apocalyptic geography through site-specific installations, the multimedia exhibition includes video, sculpture, artist performances, and community-generated programming. The project builds on over a decade of Thomas’ work that explores the affective and material conditions of Black and trans identity, expands her embodied research to consider the impacts of climate catastrophe, and imagines new ways to exist in relation to the American landscape.

Thomas will initiate her exhibition during the opening event with Come Hell or High Femmes, an immersive multimedia performance that charts the post-apocalyptic geography of Magma & Pearls.

Keioui Keijaun Thomas: Magma & Pearls is organized by Alexis Wilkinson, Assistant Curator.
