Isaac Julien

Isaac Julien is an artist and filmmaker, whose art I find sophisticated and inspiring. He is having an exhibition in the MOMA, NY called Ten Thousand Waves. It is a film installation from 2010 inspired by the Morecambe Bay tragedy of 2004, in which more than 20 Chinese cockle pickers drowned on a flooded sandbank off the coast in northwest England and the ancient China (source: MOMA). The shots were taken in Shanghai, both the modern and old parts of it.

I was delighted to be informed about an upcoming exhibition of the artist in the recently opened gallery of Victoria Miro in Mayfair. The new seven screen installation called Playtime will receive its world premier at the Gallery on the 24 January and is going to run until the 1 March.
