About the Exhibition



April 20 - August 26, 2012

La Triennale
Le Palais de Tokyo
Paris, France

Lorraine O'Grady's photographic series, Miscegenated Family Album, exhibited at the 3rd edition of La Triennale, Intense Proximity curated by Okwui Enwezor.

Featuring over 130 contributors, Intense Proximity draws upon the fields of visual art, ethnography, anthropology, cinema, literature, music, and performance, and explores the connections between artistic practice and the writing of culture throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The exhibition takes as one of its points of departure the critical legacy of the first half of twentieth century ethnography and the continued fascination in contemporary art with exploring ethnographic poetics.
