Videobrasil, in partnership with SESC, organizes Isaac Julien’s first solo show in South America.
Four multiple-screen installations, created throughout the last decade, comprise the central segment of British artist Isaac Julien’s first solo show in Brazil. Isaac Julien: Geopoetics is curated by Solange Farkas and will be held at SESC Pompeia starting in September, alongside parallel screenings of Julien’s films on SESCTV for the duration of the show.
The show spans two decades of Julien’s production and sets out to reveal to Brazilian audiences the dual character of his oeuvre: it highlights both his deep concern with cultural identity, social affirmation, gender issues, and politics, and his thorough attention to formal aspects, which entails a sharp and precise use of colors and shades, multifaceted narrative constructions, and superimpositions of visual and sound signs.
