Artpace 99.4 International Artist-in-Residence and 2001 Turner Prize finalist Isaac Julien has produced a limited-edition multiple exclusively for Artpace San Antonio. This stunning, slim light box uses state-of-the-art LED technology to illuminate a breathtaking Duratran photograph taken from True South, Julien’s latest body of work made in New Zealand. Dedicated to the memory of Artpace founder Linda Pace, the proceeds from Dreaming Red will benefit Artpace’s residency programs.

Isaac Julien rose to prominence in the early 1980s as a founding member of the Sankofa Film/Video Collective, one of the first workshops in the UK to explore new ideas of representing black identity. From his critically acclaimed documentaries and feature films to his multi-channel installations, Julien’s work combines dreamlike rhythms and lush imagery in stylized narratives. His films subvert the cinematic gaze to address stereotypes of masculinity, race, and sexual difference both head on and metaphorically. During his 1999 Artpace residency he wowed Texas with The Long Road to Mazátlan, which has now screened internationally and was the centerpiece of his Turner Prize nomination. He was visiting lecturer at Harvard University and is currently a visiting professor at the Whitney Museum of American Arts and the University of Arts, Hamburg. He is a trustee of the Serpentine Gallery and a member of the Artpace Board of Directors.
