Accomplished filmmaker and video installation artist Isaac Julien is well-known for films like Looking for Langston (1989), a poetic treatment of gay black poet Langston Hughes and the Harlem Renaissance, and other ground-breaking studies of racial and sexual identity, voyages, and cultural displacement. His multi-screen installations and accompanying photographic works for museums and galleries explore fractured narratives of memory and desire, often uniting elements from dance, painting, sculpture, theater, and music. The nine-screen installation Ten Thousand Waves (2010) investigates China's ancient past and changing present through interwoven narratives.
