The MAK Center is delighted to produce Isaac Julien's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles and to debut the artist's new body
of photographs entitled True North in the United States. Isaac Julien is an award-winning filmmaker and photographer whose work has been exhibited internationally.
Best known for his films and installation work, Juliens images are as visually captivating as they are theoretically
complex. This new series of photographs is comprised of formal stills from Juliens 2004 film shoot in Iceland. In order
to contextualize Julien's work for Los Angeles audiences, the MAK Center will host a series of educational outreach activities:
panel discussions, film screenings, and a public billboard project on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.
The Fitzpatrick-Leland House R.M. Schindler, (1936) on the corner of Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills was donated to the MAK Center in 2007. Today the house serves
as an active hub for research, contemplation, and conversation about modern architecture, contemporary art, and urban space.
