Friends of IAM: Isaac Julien

IAM is proud of the many projects we have done with Isaac Julien the award-winning artist and filmmaker who has gained international recognition for his work in both film and photography. His work ranges from documentary-style films to short films, as well as installations and photographs. 

In 2020, the artist was awarded an Honorary Fellowship from the Royal College of Arts, and was named the Affiliate Artist at Harvard University. His acclaimed film, Lessons of the Hour, which delves into the life and ideologies of leader Frederick Douglass, was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival. Through his ambitious works, Julien continues to imagine new futures, whilst shedding light on important stories that wholeheartedly deserve to be heard.

Isaac Julien was knighted by King Charles last year and has been the recipient of a number of prestigious honors, including the Ring of Goslar, an honor from the World Heritage City of Goslar, Germany, which is bestowed upon an individual for their outstanding services in the areas of art, culture, and science.
