Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

For the closing weekend of Maryam Jafri’s exhibition I Drank the Kool-Aid but I Didn’t Inhale, Maryam Jafri will join ICA Curator Jamillah James to discuss her process using research and interdisciplinary approaches to make work of conceptual inquiry on such perennial subjects as consumer culture, representation, economics, and politics. The discussion will be part of a tour of Jafri’s exhibition followed by refreshments and light snacks.

I Drank the Kool-Aid but I Didn’t Inhale is Jafri’s first solo presentation in the US, which combines framed texts, “still life” product photography, and unsuccessful food products from the private archives of anonymous food industry figures.
