EXHIBITION

A rare opportunity to see two remarkable and relevant film installations by acclaimed British contemporary artist Isaac Julien. His work addresses issues of globalization, movements of peoples, displacement, and the aesthetics of geography.

These visually encompassing narratives place you in times and locations that reflect the past while projecting the future. Immersive and poetic, they will captivate and inspire you.

WESTERN UNION: Small Boats (2007) tells the stories of people seeking a better life and their dangerous journeys across the Mediterranean Sea to escape war and famine.

True North (2004) is inspired by Matthew Henson, the black American explorer who accompanied Robert Peary to the North Pole.

Isaac Julien: Other Destinies closes Sunday April 23.
