Wisdom is inspired by the idea that one of the greatest gifts one generation can pass to another is its collective wisdom. This multifaceted project, including a book, short film, and exhibition by award-winning photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman, creates a record of a multicultural group of people who have all made their mark on the world. The artist traveled the globe to interview and photograph 50 of the world’s most iconic figures over the age of 65, chosen in collaboration with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. These works are exhibited at Brookfield Place as extraordinary large-format portraits of famous elders from the worlds of politics, science, sports, and the arts including Madeleine Albright, Andrew Wyeth, Clint Eastwood, Billie Jean King, Nelson Mandela, Jane Goodall, and Chinua Acebe.
