Magic Demonstration: Acid Money, Malin Nilsson

WHEN : 8th March, 6:00 - 7:00pm
WHERE : Institute of Modern Art

Experience a one-of-a-kind live magic demonstration that conjures up the sleight-of-hand routinely used by actors on the financial market, performed by magician Malin Nilsson.

For the past seven years artist duo Goldin+Senneby has worked with Swedish magician Nilsson to produce work that helps us recognise that financial trading is analogous to magic– indeed the mechanisms at play are typically imperceptible to those not in the know, and their effects produce truth from fiction. Nilsson will be performing a magic demonstration titled ‘Acid Money’, at the culmination of Goldin+Senneby’s exhibition at the IMA, ‘Standard Length of a Miracle (The Bootleg)’.

Join us Thursday 8 March, 6pm to witness this world-renowned magician perform at the IMA.

This is a free event; however, numbers are strictly limited. Tickets are limited to one per person and bookable via Eventbrite. Find out more on the IMA website here:
