Lessons of the Hour—Frederick Douglass

MAG is pleased to announce Lessons of the Hour, a multi-screen film and video installation by pioneering global media artist Isaac Julien. The work is freely inspired by the life of Frederick Douglass (1818–1895), the visionary African American abolitionist and freed slave, and by issues of social justice that shape so much of global history. Lessons of the Hour is the second in MAG’s “Reflections on Place” series of media art commissions informed by the history, culture, and politics of the City of Rochester, New York.
