Isaac Julien

Exhibition and Shows

4 Mar 2022 to 27 May 2022 Once Only Event

In 2022, that essential space, the Samstag Museum of Art presents the work of the major British artist Isaac Julien, in an exciting collaboration between two galleries and two of Australia’s major arts festivals, for the 2022 Adelaide and Perth Festivals with Curtin University’s John Curtin Gallery.

Julien’s spectacular installations involve production on a big budget movie scale: long multi-location shoots, stellar casts, specially mounted performance sequences, sophisticated editing, sound design and scoring. Thrillingly presented across multiple screens, these kaleidoscopic contemporary pageants critically reflect on themes of identity, history and social representation.

One exhibition across two cities, Samstag and Curtin University’s John Curtin Gallery are linked by Julien’s much-lauded Ten Thousand Waves, a work that interweaves ancient Chinese myth with contemporary Fujian life as it meditates on the infamous 2004 drowning of 20 immigrant workers in northwest England.
