About the Artist
Isaac Julien is as acclaimed for his fluent, arresting films as his vibrant and inventive gallery installations. One of the objectives of his work is to break down the barriers that exist between different artistic disciplines, drawing from and commenting on film, dance, photography, music, theatre, painting and sculpture, and uniting them to construct a powerfully visual narrative.
Looking for Langston (excerpt)
Isaac Julien’s seminal work Looking for Langston (1989/2017) is the focus of the exhibition “I dream a world” Looking for Langston, an exhibition of newly-conceived, large-scale and silver gelatin photographic works and archival material, on display at Victoria Miro (18 May – 29 July). A rare screening of Looking for Langston in its original 16mm format, followed by a conversation between Isaac Julien and Tate curator Zoe Whitley, will take place in the Clore Auditorium, Tate Britain, Thursday 20 July, 7 - 9pm.
