Mark Nash examines Isaac Julien work
Having the work Ten Thousand Waves as point of departure, Mr. Nash will address different aspects of Isaac Julien’s work in a publicly open meeting. For exemple, he observes certain dichotomies that this production has, such as its thematic realism, evident in the careful social construction of their characters, along with certain images "functioning as pivots enabling the film to segue out of a documentary interview into a more poetic sequence. "
Among many other issues, Mark Nash examines the multiplicity of meanings that the work of Isaac Julien houses, like the body dynamics - both present in the choreography of actors and performers filmed, and in social struggle catching, passing even the physical movement of the public while transiting through the installation and its consequent emotional involvement.
Mark Nash is a curator and film theorist. He is currently professor and head of Department Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, London. A cocurator of Documenta11 (2002), his most recent exhibition, One Sixth of the Earth, at MUSAC, Spain, focused on contemporary moving-image work from the former Soviet Union. In the 1970s and 1980s he was actively involved in British film culture as editor of Screen (1976–81) and as an independent filmmaker. His essays from that time are collected in Screen Theory Culture (London: Palgrave MacMillan, 2008).
