Her artist talk will take place directly after the reception for Incidental Transformations in the Brazos Gallery.
Magid is known for taking institutional structures and language as her media, developing a largely performance-based practice in which she seeks to engage institutions of power on a personal, intimate level. Intrigued by hidden information and it’s relation to the public existence, her videos and installations have been exhibited in the Whitney Biennial 2010, the Tate Modern, and she is currently participating in Failed States at the AMOA-Arthouse, Austin.
Magid will also be speaking at the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum on Tuesday, March 6th and researching a commission piece for te D/FW area.

She has received various awards including the Basis Stipendium from Fonds Voor Beeldende Kunsten in the Netherlands in 2006 and the Netherland-American Foundation Fellowship Fulbright Grant from 2001-2002.
