TD is proud to present Isaac Julien: Other Destinies
A rare opportunity to see two remarkable and relevant film installations by acclaimed British contemporary artist Isaac Julien, whose work addresses issues of globalization, movements of peoples, displacement, and the aesthetics of geography. These visually encompassing narratives place the viewer in times and locations that reflect the past while projecting the future. Immersive and poetic, they will captivate and inspire.
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 is open until April 23, 2017, at the Royal Ontario Museum, and is included with Museum admission. Visit rom.ca for more information.
