Artist, filmmaker and former Turner Prize nominee Isaac Julien will present a special public lecture on Saturday 24 September about his recent project ‘Ten Thousand Waves’, which was inspired by the tragic death of cockle pickers in Morecambe Bay.
Dr Ashley Thorpe, conference co-organiser, said: “We are very much looking forward to welcoming Isaac to the University. His talk promises to be an intriguing insight into his creative methods. His projects have won global acclaim, having been shown in art galleries around the world. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear a highly respected artist and filmmaker talk about his work.’ Julien’s visit coincides with the ‘Contesting British Chinese Culture: Forms, Histories, Identities’ conference, being held on 24-25 September.
The lecture will be held in the Bulmershe Theatre, Minghella Building on the University’s Whiteknights Campus. It begins at 6.30pm and is free to attend.
