Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is pleased to present Isaac Julien: Refuge, featuring the Australian debut of his new multi-screen installation Stones Against Diamonds (2015) juxtaposed with one of the artist's most prophetic works WESTERN UNION: Small Boats (2007). The exhibition surveys Julien's poetic film and photographic installations, across three continents, spanning eight years. Together the works explore cartographies of displacement, from the baroque to modernist architecture, from Italy, to Iceland and Brazil. Julien is one of Britain's most influential and critically acclaimed artists working today - a pioneer of multi-screen installations. By uniting a range of artistic disciplines, Julien creates a sophisticated and theoretical resonance concerning world issues today.
