Lockton is proud to support Isaac Julien: What Freedom is to Me, a landmark new show celebrating the influential work of Sir Isaac Julien at Tate Britain. This ambitious solo exhibition reveals the full scope of Sir Isaac’s pioneering work in film and installation from the early 1980s through to the present day. This is the first time his work, spanning forty years, will be presented as a survey exhibition in the UK.
An award-winning artist and filmmaker, Sir Isaac has broken down barriers between both artistic disciplines and people. The exhibition will present works from early films to large-scale, multi-screen installations which investigate the movement of peoples across different continents, times and spaces.
The exhibition marks the first Lockton supported exhibition as part of the Lockton Tate Partnership, a multi-year partnership celebrating shared values of independence, diversity and inclusion. The partnership will focus on three exhibitions at Tate Britain, and from October 2023 will support an expanded community programme.
EJ Hentenaar, CEO of Lockton Europe, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting Isaac Julien: What Freedom is to Me, particularly as it marks the first Lockton exhibition as part of the Lockton Tate Partnership. This ground-breaking exhibition, the first of its kind in the UK, showcases the breadth of Sir Isaac’s talent and draws on key themes of history and culture. Lockton is proud to support artistic risk-taking, community engagement and access to art for all.”
