Presenting an exhibition of three recent video installations by award-winning British artist Isaac Julien. Each film installation explores the wide-ranging effects of how information, labor, and capital circulate in global, networked societies. Gallery 308, FMCAC Visitor Center, SFAI Gray Box Gallery.
Three video installations by British filmmaker and visual artist Isaac Julien address the interconnection of labor, capitalism and information flow in the globalist age. Taking its name from Jacques Tati’s 1967 film, “Playtime,” a montage with James Franco and Maggie Cheung, it plays across seven large monitors and unfolds in three capital cities—London, Reykjavik and Dubai—focusing on different characters impacted by the 2008 financial crisis.
