Julian Louis Phillips Performing “1518” and Post-performance Dialogue

Saturday June 29th
4:30 – 5:30pm

This event is part of the Exhibition Wicket Leeks, in the Flux Gallery from June 22nd to July 13th

Please RSVP on Facebook.


“1518” is a performance inspired by the struggle that the first of a demographic must endure when they break social barriers. The title is taken from Jackie Robinson’s career hits, totaling 1,518. Robinson, who faced vile hatred when he was chosen to integrate baseball, has become a symbol of racial tolerance and justice. Today as racial injustice persist, “1518” questions the mechanisms associated with social change through sports and other capitalist structures.

After this durational performance Julian will talk about his process and work.

After graduating from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, studying Art and Psychology, he attended Social Practice Queens at Queens college where he received his MFA. He has been a More Art Engaging Artist Fellow, JCAL Jerome Foundation Resident Artist, and NARS Foundation Resident. He has exhibited and performed throughout New York and the Northeast. Phillips resides and makes work in Brooklyn.
