    Twenty Summers – “The African Desperate” Screening + Q&A with Martine Syms
    Date: 2024-05-29     Time: 7 PM : 0 minutes

    Season Eleven Twenty Summers, rooted in Provincetown’s Hawthorne Barn, celebrates artistic freedom, offering resources, residencies, and a platform for originality and innovation, honoring its rich legacy.

    Join us at Waters Edge Cinema for a screening of “The African Desperate”, followed by Q&A with filmmaker and Twenty Summers 2024 Fellow Martine Syms.

    Chaos reigns in the riotously funny debut feature from visual artist Martine Syms. With a breakthrough performance from Diamond Stingily, this hallucinatory day-in-the-life of a Black artist is a rollicking satire of art-world pretensions and a rowdy portrayal of sex and drugs in the Internet age.

    Martine Syms has shown extensively including solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and ICA London. She has also done commissioned work for brands such as Prada, Nike, and Celine, among others. She is a recipient of the Creative Capital Award, a United States Artists fellowship, the Tiffany Foundation award, and the Future Fields Art Prize. She is in a band called Aunt Sister and hosts Doubler Penetration, a monthly radio show on NTS. She also runs Dominica Publishing.
