Two evocative multichannel video installations by acclaimed South African-born artist Candice Breitz reflect on privilege, visibility, and shrinking attention spans in an information economy that fetishizes celebrity and thrives on entertainment. Love Story (2016) recounts the experiences of six refugees as told by themselves and by Hollywood actors Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin. TLDR (2017), conceived and produced in dialogue with the Sex Workers Education & Advocacy Taskforce in Cape Town, South Africa, features interviews that examine power disparities and the rights of sex workers in South Africa using alluring visual tactics and the vernacular of the Internet.

Curated by Asma Naeem, The Eddie C. and C. Sylvia Brown Chief Curator
