Isaac Julien: Geopoetics
Four multiple-screen installations created in the last decade comprise the core segment of Isaac Julien: Geopoetics, the British artist's first solo show in Brazil (at SESC Pompeia, Sept 4 through Dec 16). Curated by Solange Farkas, the show will feature screenings of highlights of Julien's filmography on SESCTV.
The show spans three decades of production. "The selection accounts for the nuances in Isaac Julien's work. His formal transgressions, for instance, are as important as the issues of gender, politics, or social belonging which his work addresses," says the curator. The artist explains the show's title: "We live in a world in which there is a desire to question the waves of globalization. I am very much interested in looking at different places in the political or cultural geography, in exploring them," says Julien.
Nominated for the 2001 Turner Prize, Isaac Julien is a leading name in worldwide audiovisual media. His first solo show in Brazil will feature a schedule of meetings and an extensive educational program. Follow Videobrasil on Facebook and Twitter and keep updated.
