Amie Siegel Artist Talk: Provenance

  • In Person

The experience of watching [Provenance] is mesmerizing, startling and troubling.

Cinema Scope

We are delighted to welcome artist Amie Siegel, who will show and discuss her recent works Provenance and Lot 248, part of her ensemble museum installation that insightfully examines the global art and design markets. In elegant long takes, Provenance travels in reverse from homes populated by midcentury modern chairs, desks, and tables to the furniture’s origins in the Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret–designed city of Chandigarh, India. In tracking the surprising provenance of these objects, Siegel also reveals the means by which they gain value and enter the art market, much as her own film Provenance does in Lot 248.
