22 Sept. The American Academy in Rome presents the work of artist, filmmaker and newly arrived AAR resident Isaac Julien, including recent works from Ten Thousand Waves (2010), a response to the Morecambe Bay tragedy in 2004; PLAYTIME: KAPITAL, as well as his contributions to this year’s Venice Biennale and his current project on the life and work of the Brazilian modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi.
The talk, in English, takes place at 18.00 and will be followed by a conversation with curator and writer Mark Nash.
Julien's work is centred around deconstructing barriers between different artistic disciplines, uniting drawing film, dance, photography, music, theatre, painting and sculpture, to create new visual narratives. Photo identification is required for entry into the American Academy in Rome.
