Who Killed Colin Roach? On show with Galerie Ron Mandos at Loop Barcelona
We are delighted to announce the participation of Isaac Julien in LOOP Fair 2021, taking place from November 16 to 18 at Gaudi’s Casa Milà.
Julien’s work Lessons of the Hour (Who Killed Colin Roach?, 1983) will be exhibited with Galerie Ron Mandos and consists of Isaac Julien’s very first film, created in 1983 when he was an art student together with a series of silver gelatin photographs of a demonstration in London.
While making Lessons of the Hour in 2019, Isaac Julien rediscovered these photographs in his archove and was shocked to realise how significant they were to our present time.
Who Killed Colin Roach? is Isaac Julien's first film, which reflects upon the death of Colin Roach, a 23 year old who was shot at the entrance of a police station in East London, in 1982.
