Isaac Julien@ Victoria Miro- “seven screen work”


Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 08.55.11“Well known filmmaker and installation artist, Isaac Julien came to prominence in the film world with his 1989 drama-documentary Looking for Langston. By incorporating themes of sexuality and race, Julien’s work expands conventional strategies of narrative and beauty to explore stereotypical cinematic portrayals of gay and black subjects“(http://dailyserving.com/2009/01/isaac-julien/)

On my wish list for January

..I am looking forward to seeing his amazing work at Victoria Miro from January 24th:

Isaac Julien | Artists | Victoria Miro.“Exhibited for the first time as a seven-screen work, PLAYTIME transforms the whole of Victoria Miro’s upstairs gallery into a striking and immersive installation, montaging the work’s protagonists and locations across multiple screens in reference to capital’s potential to both facilitate global movement and to create its own barriers.
