His work employs a unique coupling of narrative and avant-garde strategies to explore issues of race, gender and sexuality. Isaac Julien documents his recent exhibition at the Art Pace Foundation for Contemporary Art in San AntonioUincluding a trilogy of film/video installations that examine both the complexities and possibilities of eroticism and desire, as well as his latest work, The Road to Mazatlan, which explores the figure of the cowboy in gay culture. This book also collects, for the first time, Juliens critical writings, which offer a challenging and exciting perspective on issues of cultural politics and aesthetics, particularly where questions of black and gay identity are concerned.
