THURS, JUNE 28, 6:15 PM
Have you experienced the Expeditions
films that unfold like paintings across three screens? Like with True North
and Fantôme Afrique
, which were previously installed at the Museum, for Western Union: Small Boats
, the London-based artist used brilliant photography, poetic sensibility, and philosophical complexity to deal with current socioeconomic and geopolitical affairs. In this case, the perilous voyage of migrants from West Africa to Italy in search of a better life.
Join Shelleen Greene of the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, and contributing author to the catalogue, as she shares her unique perspective on the work of one of the leading film installation artists of the twenty-first century. Signed copies of Isaac Julien: Expeditions
will be available for purchase that evening from the Museum Store.
