Turner Prize nominee, Isaac Julien, is Britain’s preeminent black filmmaker, an internationally recognized artist, writer, teacher, and scholar. His preoccupation is with the representation of race and masculinity and he employs conventional filmic strategies such as narrative and beauty to explore and subvert stereotypical portrayals of gay and black subjects. More poetic than didactic, his films are characterized by their dream-like imagery and sensuality. He talked about work exhibited in the 2001 Turner Prize. Visit the 2001 Turner Prize website.
