Contemporaries Pop-up: Julie Wolfe Studio Visit

Contemporaries Event

December 8, 2019, 2-3 pm

Phillips Contemporaries Members will visit the studio of artist Julie Wolfe.

Julie Wolfe is a visual and conceptual artist living and working in Washington, DC. Her work is featured in institutions and collections internationally and has been reviewed in ARTnews, BBC American, and Hyperallergic. Her most recent solo exhibition was at American University Katzen Museum. Wolfe’s work is conceived by harvesting data, discarded objects, and images that create a new narrative in the context of ecological environment and social / cultural evolution. She offers abstract equations, mapping patterns, and geometric networks as a means to describe the workings of a given system. By engaging in this symbolic dialect of time, place, interconnectedness, and memory, she invites the viewer to trace their own associations and interpretations. Her stories are told through photographs, drawings, sculptural structures, large abstract paintings, and wall installations where color and form, destruction and beauty reign in this experience of aesthetic seduction.
