ISAAC JULIEN

Isaac Julien’s (b. 1960, London, UK) multi-screen film installations and photographs incorporate different artistic disciplines to create a poetic and unique visual language. The themes in Julien’s work address topics such as interracial relationships, institutionalized racism, transcultural identity to experiences of cultural displacement and migration. The artist’s films are physical and geographic, but also sensory and conceptual – motifs that have constantly resonated throughout his practice. He orchestrates various methods such as film, photography, choreography and sound to create an immersive atmosphere. His films are often installed on multiple screens. Linda Pace was a dedicated supporter of Julien’s practice; her Foundation continues to maintain a comprehensive collection of his work.
