Curator’s Areas of Interest:
Julia is interested in immersive and interactive art, including participative artworks. She is highly concerned about the engagement aspect of a piece, and how the public receives it. Julia is drawn to visual art that mixes with other artforms, as well as site-specific works that respond to a particular place and context.
