Search Sweet Country, a Newly Commissioned Performance by Christian Nyampeta, Followed by a Conversation with Curator Maria Lind


If love songs about loss and overcoming are part of our history, Christian Nyampeta wants to know what happens to that history when we translate, remix, re-record, and recompose them. Specially commissioned by MA Curatorial Practice, Search Sweet Country summons sculptures, images, sounds, and movement for a lyrical performance about longing and belonging.
