Candice Breitz’s 'Profile' acquired and exhibited by New York’s Jewish Museum

The prestigious Jewish Museum in New York has acquired Profile, a film installation by Candice Breitz first shown at the 57th Venice Biennale. Profile features ten prominent artists who introduce themselves as Breitz, blurring personal and shared biographical details to create a composite self-portrait that problematises the idea of a single person representing a diverse nation. The film is being screened as part of the museum’s ongoing exhibition, Scenes from the Collection, which brings together work that affirms ‘universal values that are shared among people of all faiths and backgrounds’.

Candice Breitz and Hank Willis Thomas on major exhibition celebrating ‘the king of pop’ in London

Work by Breitz and Thomas feature on the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition, Michael Jackson: On the Wall, commemorating the contribution of Michael Jackson to popular and contemporary visual culture (28 June – 21 October). Taking an interesting angle on celebrating the life of Jackson, the exhibition explores how the singer inspired some of the leading names in contemporary art. Curated by Dr Nicholas Cullinan, this major new exhibition spans several generations of artists who each work across a diverse range of media. The exhibition is scheduled to travel to multiple art institutions including The Grand Palais and Espoo Museum of Modern Art, but opens at the National Portrait Gallery to coincide with what would have been Jackson’s 60th birthday.
