Presented in conjunction with Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898 – 1971 is Isaac Julien’s Baltimore, a three-channel installation. Julien’s film is an homage to the writer, director, producer, and actor Melvin Van Peebles (1932–2021), whose 1971 film Sweet Sweet back’s Baadasssss Song ushered in the “blaxploitation” era, a genre of low-budget films created for African American audiences during the 1970s. Artist Isaac Julien appropriates the look and feel of blaxploitation films, using Baltimore’s streets and museums as locations. Julian created this piece while filming Baadasssss Cinema (2002), a documentary on blaxploitation.
