Isaac Julien's Biography

Isaac Julien is a British artist and filmmaker, born in 1960. He is best known for his pioneering contribution to the development of time-based media and installation art. Julien is one of the leading figures of the Black artistic Renaissance, which began in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and has continued to influence contemporary art. His work is characterized by its exploration of identity, race, and political representation, and features themes of displacement, marginalization, and the African diaspora. He has exhibited widely across the world, including at the Tate Britain, the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, and the Berlin Biennale.
