The Menil Collection says
Artist Amie Siegel screens and discusses her 2013 works Provenance and Lot 248, part of her ensemble museum installation exploring 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 does in Lot 248, which documents the sale of Provenance at Christie’s London.

The artist will be in conversation with Curator Toby Kamps.

Co-presented with Houston Cinema Arts Society as part of the 2016 Houston Cinema Arts Festival
