Marie Bovo: How To Survive Abstraction


CMP Projects presents the work of Marie Bovo in the Marseille-based artist’s first American solo museum exhibition. Threaded throughout Bovo’s practice is her interest in the human act of carving out a space for community within inhospitable urban landscapes, and more broadly, within the confinement of law, the logics of nations, and the systems of globalism. She variably employs the abstracting quality of her medium to give us openness or to construct more claustrophobic spaces.

Marie Bovo: How to Survive Abstraction is organized by the California Museum of Photography at UCR ARTSblock and is curated by Joanna Szupinska-Myers, CMP Curator of Exhibitions. The exhibition is made possible with the generous support of FRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Institut Français, and kamel mennour, Paris. Additional support is provided by UCR’s College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CHASS) and the City of Riverside.
