IDENTIFY: María Magdalena Campos-Pons

Saturday, May 14, 4 p.m. |  Kogod Courtyard

María Magdalena Campos-Pons works with her husband, saxophonist and composer Neil Leonard, to reinsert the black body into historical narratives. Under the name FEFA, they use personal stories, music and procession to evoke both protest and devotion. Their performance will begin in the Kogod Courtyard and move through the museum. 

IDENTIFY is the National Portrait Gallery's first-ever performance art series, which focuses attention on activism, visibility and experimentation through portrayal. This series pushes the boundaries of portraiture through performance art.
