Isaac Julien: Lina Bo Bardi — A  Marvellous  Entanglement is on view through February 27, 2022, at the Bechtler Museum in Charlotte, NC.

Filmmaker Isaac Julien’s new project, Lina Bo Bardi — A Marvellous Entanglement, currently making its U.S. debut at the Bechtler Museum in Charlotte, NC, though conceived before the pandemic, is a timely one for a number of reasons. Previously on view at MAXXI, the National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome, A Marvellous Entanglement is an immersive experience that explores the life, words, and work of architect Lina Bo Bardi. A non-sequential biographical excursion into Bo Bardi’s world, the exhibition plays with the passage of time, showing us the stages of Bo Bardi’s life overlapping with the lives taken on by her own buildings. Julien spoke with us about his love of Bo Bardi and what makes her buildings so remarkable.
