Performative Lecture: Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen’s 1967: A People Kind of Place


ICA explored the revolutionary potential of film and the cinematic archive with a series of screenings, discussions, and performances presented as part of the exhibition Living Document / Naked Reality: Towards an Archival Cinema.

The performance 1967: A People Kind of Place investigated a monumental UFO-landing pad built into the Canadian prairies with Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, who took this momentary convergence of science fiction and identity politics as the basis for archival research into the beginnings of the idea of multiculturalism.

The performance was followed by a discussion between the artist and Jennifer Burris, Whitney-Lauder Curatorial Fellow.
