Isaac Julien | Lessons of the Hour

Presented in partnership with Edingburg Art Festival

On now until Sun 10 Oct 2021

National Galleries Scotland and Edinburgh Art Festival are delighted to be working together to present the UK and European premiere of Isaac Julien’s Lessons of the Hour. This major new ten-screen film installation by celebrated British artist Isaac Julien, CBE, RA, offers a poetic meditation on the life and times of Frederick Douglass, the visionary African American orator, philosopher, intellectual, and self-liberated freedom-fighter, who was born into slavery in Maryland, USA. From 1845-7, Douglass made repeated visits to Edinburgh, while campaigning across the UK and Ireland against US slavery.

Mikael Olsson stars in Lessons of the Hour, a multi-screen film and video installation by pioneering global media artist Isaac Julien commission by Memorial Art Gallery, University of Rochester, New York.

REVIEW FOTOGRAFISK TIDSKRIFT BY MAGNUS BONS



Intense, dry and twisted passion.

Maybe described Olsson's chain of alternating black and white and color images best as a philosophical suggestions of what photography can be. A reflection on what takes place in the movement between the photographer, the camera and the subject. Three parts that form a unit.

REVIEW SVD BY MAGNUS AF PETERSENS



Architecture photography that bordering on the abstract

"The photographs move in the borderland between representation and abstraction, condensed, conceptually and visually pregnant. They form autonomous rooms, to speak with Nádas.”

LESSONS OF THE HOUR, ON VIEW AT MCEVOY FOUNDATION



Lessons of the Hour by Isaac Julien on view at McEvoy Foundation.

A non-linear presentation projected across 10 screens, Lessons of the Hour imagines Douglass as he traveled across the United Kingdom, lecturing in England, Scotland and Ireland for 19 months beginning in 1845. Douglass fled the United States that year for fear of being captured and re-enslaved after publishing Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, the first of three biographies he would write. While in Europe, Douglass enjoyed both wide public acclaim for his contributions to anti-slavery efforts, and movement free of harassment or abuse for his race.

Mikael Olsson stars in Lessons of the Hour.
