Her ICA exhibition will feature works derived from her recent video series Lessons, an incomplete poem in 180 sections. Each Lesson takes the form of a 30-second TV clip. The footage, which is original and appropriated, is a distillation of everyday life.
Syms is the founder of Dominica, a publishing imprint dedicated to exploring black aesthetics in visual culture. Through publishing, video, and performance Syms explores the making and reception of meaning in present- day America.
