Artist-Guided Look Into the Art Market
LACMA to organize Isaac Julien’s first LA solo presentation
The museum recently announced three new exhibitions to open to public in May, including a solo of artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien. On view from May 5th through August 11th, the exhibition showcases one of Julien’s most recognized works—Playtime.
The film has been exhibited at Fort Mason, San Francisco (2017), Platform-L Contemporary Arts Center, Seoul (2017); and Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City (2016); as well as other venues around the world as video installation. The work features actors James Franco, Maggie Cheung, and Mercedes Cabral, as well as Swiss auctioneer Simon de Pury. From perspective of different characters—the Artist, the Hedge Fund Manager, the Auctioneer, the House Worker, the Art Dealer, and the Reporter, the work unrolls a captivating critique of the influence of capital on the art market. Save the date, as browse through other new offerings of LACMA this spring!
该作品主演有James Franco、Maggie Cheung、Mercedes Cabral，以及瑞士拍卖师Simon de Pury。 从不同角色的角度来看——艺术家、对冲基金经理、拍卖师、众议院工作者、艺术品经销商和记者，这部作品展开了资本对艺术市场影响的审判。 预留日期吧，也可以看看今年春季LACMA的其他新选择！
