ISAAC JULIEN IN CONVERSATION WITH KATHRYN WEIR

Join artist Isaac Julien as he discusses his ambitious new film installation, PLAYTIME with Head of International Art and the Australian Cinémathèque, Kathryn Weir at Carriageworks this Saturday 22 March. Julien’s film explores the relationship between capital, the art world and the individual. Presented in three parts, PLAYTIME is set across three cities defined by their relationship to capital: London, a city transformed by the deregulation of banks; Reykjavik, where the 2008 crisis began; and Dubai, one of the Middle East’s burgeoning financial markets.

Isaac Julien is a British artist and filmmaker (b. 1960) whose work incorporates different artistic disciplines, drawing from and commenting on film, dance, photography, music, theatre, painting and sculpture, and uniting them to create a unique poetic visual language in audio visual film installations. His 1991 film Young Soul Rebels won the Semaine de la Critique prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
