Fall News!

Hello dear friends! I am writing to share some fall news with you, in hopes that I might see you here or there... Love, Julia

Peekskill Project 6

Saturdays and Sundays 12-5 until December 31​

Really Large Numbers (my collaboration with Chad Stayrook) has a new installation on view in Peekskill, NY as part of Peekskill Project 6, a large group show in and around the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art. Our new piece is called Anomaly no. 2: Meteorite, and it will take you for a ride through the cosmos. We worked with curator Alessandro Facente for this project. The work will be on view on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 PM until December 31.

To See the Sky With the Naked Eye
Union Cinema, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd. Milwaukee, WI
October 13, 7 PM

My video Infinitely Impossible will be included in the wonderfully named screening To See the Sky With the Naked Eye in Milwaukee. Co-presented by the Manfred Olson Planetarium at UWM, this program combines select 16mm works from the UWM Cinema Arts Archive and video works from artists invited by the curator to contemplate the depth and range of phenomena surrounding the untouchable sky and space that surrounds us. Curated by Taka Suzuki, this screening will take place on October 13 at 7 PM at the Union Cinema.

​From Nowhere at Sluice Art Fair
Bargenhouse, London UK

My video Star Noise will be included in From Nowhere at Sluice Art Fair this year. Sluice__screens is a strand of Sluice programming that focuses specifically on projected/video art. This year, several artists and curators were invited to program a day each. From Nowhere is curated by Jean-Michel Crapanzano.

Art Seen

I will be screening Laika's Lullaby, an ode to the soviet spacedog Laika with music by the amazing Lindsay Keast, as part of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival, organized by Caryn Coleman, at Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, NY this November. On the evening of November 11 at 7:30 pm, I will be joining Zachary Heinzerling, Marcel Dzama, Ronni Thomas and Takeshi Murata for a screening and panel discussion as part of Art Seen.

​Cinespace (Houston Cinema Arts Festival/NASA)
She Works Flexible, 1709 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX
Opening reception November 12, 5 PM

I am very excited to be showing two videos and a series of drawings at She Works Flexible gallery in Houston TX in conjunction with the Houston Cinema Arts Festival's collaboration with NASA, Cinespace. I'll be joining Jeanne Liotta and Laura Heit for this 3-person exhibition and will be giving an artist talk and screening 4 videos on November 15. Curated by Richard Herskowitz.

Venus Vault, 2220 Superior Viaduct, Cleveland, OH
Opening Reception: November 20, 6 – 9 pm
On view at SPACES: November 20, 2015 – January 15, 2016

Laika's Lullaby (with music by Lindsay Keast) will be included in the the feminist planetarium program Venus Vault at Spaces. Enter a cozy womb-like environment where you can safely consider the underpinnings of everything you thought you knew about everything. Engage in a tender exploration of a familiar/foreign planet via the 3D Mission: Cleveland Land Mass; spelunk inner space with Baby! Love your Body! Episode 1; and question authority in astronomy with Womyn Space. Shed an astral tear for the first bitch in space over Laika's Lullaby; go into deep space (if you dare) with Pink Black Hole; and back in time to the witchy origins of the universe with Middle of the Night. Then tumble gently back to earth on Le Voyage Dans la Lune.

Flutteries, or a Feeling of Impending Doom

There's one more week to check out Flutteries, or a Feeling of Impending Doom, a two-person show with Really Large Numbers (my collab with Chad Stayrook) and Jessica Segall with Art in Buildings in Manhattan. Visit the lobby of 125 Maiden Lane any day of the week to check it out before it comes down!

Thanks for reading, and have a marvelous autumn!
