On public view from 13 October 2019 (until 2020), Julien's immersive video installation addresses representations of global capital.
Featuring actors James Franco, Maggie Cheung and Mercedes Cabral, each iteration of the film addresses representation of how labor, information and global capital circulate within society. On view within Ruby City, in a space dedicated to the acclaimed British artist’s work, the show will run through August 2020. Isaac Julien CBE is known for his unique poetic and visual language; themes in his work commonly address topics such as race, queer and transcultural identities and migration. During her lifetime, Pace was a dedicated supporter of Julien’s practice, acquiring more than 50 works for her permanent collection. Today, the Linda Pace Foundation maintains the largest holdings of the artist’s work worldwide.
Isaac Julien will take part in a panel discussion with curator Kathryn Kanjo and architect David Adjaye at 11am on 12 October 2019.
