Online conference to discuss Isaac Julien's aesthetics of political remembering
On the occasion of the exhibition of three-screen film installation Western Union: Small Boats at the Neuberger Museum in Purchase NY, Isaac Julien and curator Diana Puglisi will meet for a public conversation on themes such as remembering as a political act, migration and the role of art in times of crisis. As pointed out by the Hyperallergic writer Nicole Willer, 'Julien’s observation reflects widespread apprehension about the collapse of ecologies, economies, and forms of governance around the globe.'
The event is organised and mediated by Professor Louise Yelin, co-curator of the exhibition. As the ongoing pandemic requires the museum to remain closed for the time being, this will be an online talk via Zoom, free for all viewers (registration needed), taking place on 22 April, from 1 to 2 PM (GMT-4).
