The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by José Carlos Teixeira, on view in the Imprint Gallery January 13 through May 20. Born and raised in Portugal and currently based in Wisconsin, the artist is intimately familiar with the complexities of immigration - from confronting feelings of displacement to undertaking the challenges of learning a new culture. In his artwork, Teixeira moves beyond his personal experiences to create video installations that investigate larger notions of belonging and exile. José Carlos Teixeira: ON EXILE is a two-part exhibition featuring video essays the artist produced between 2016 and 2017.
Part I ON EXILE: Fragments in search of meaning, January 13 - March 4, 2018
Part II ON EXILE: Elsewhere within here, March 10 - May 20, 2018
MMoCA opening March 9, 2018 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
