    "FROM A TO B 
    AND BACK AGAIN"

    13th ANNUAL MILLER LECTURE 
    IN ART & ART HISTORY

    Candice Breitz (born in Johannesburg, 1972) is a Berlin-based artist who is well known internationally for her moving image installations that explore popular culture and media's effect on the contemporary identity. In 2013, SCMA acquired Breitz's Factum Tremblay, a part of her Factum series. The series takes its name from Robert Rauschenberg's paintings Factum I and Factum II (1957), which examine the persistent differences in apparent replicas. Factum Tremblay explores questions of gender and sexual identity while growing up with a twin. (On view in the museum’s Video and New Media Gallery until August 28th, 2016.)
