This winter, the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation Global Experience Project at OCAD University will support the residency of acclaimed artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien.

Five students (Yuling Chen, Aylan Couchie, Aaron Moore, leaf jerlefia, Justyna Werbel) will come together to creatively respond to the themes resonant in Isaac’s work, while gaining access to the behind the scenes installation of his upcoming show at the ROM; attend events related to Isaac’s work in Toronto and his Images Festival Screening; and travel to Isaac’s studio in London, U.K.

Isaac Julien is a Turner prize nominated artist, photographer and filmmaker. He was born in London in 1960, where he currently lives and works.  Julien has pioneered a form of multi-screen installations, including light-boxes and photographic.  Julien’s work is included in the collections of institutions around the globe, he is currently producing a new work that is a poetic meditation on aspects of the life and architecture of Lina Bo Bardi. After teaching at Harvard University (1998-2002), Julien was Professor of Media Art at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe (2009-2015) and Chair of Global Art at University of Arts London (2014-2016).  For more on Isaac Julien:  http://www.isaacjulien.com/?_ga=1.13690933.368919176.1416234232

The Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation Global Experience Project was made possible by a $500,000 gift from the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation to OCAD University. The Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation has been a supporter of OCAD U for nearly 15 years by funding such events as the annual Graduate Exhibition and the Nomadic Resident Program.  “The Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation is delighted to invest in this transformational program at OCAD U, where students will engage with world-renowned artists and embark on international learning experiences,” said Carol Weinbaum, representative of the Foundation. “We are excited to help bring Isaac Julien to campus for the inaugural edition of the project.”
