MADA Talks: Julia Gorman
Join us for a presentation by artist Julia Gorman.
Julia’s multifaceted practice includes sculpture, installation, painting, drawing and public commissions. She is renowned for her vibrant colour and fluidity of line. Her work has an open structure, legitimising lightness and spontaneity. The artwork itself can be as ephemeral in material as balloons and streamers, or as permanent as a welded steel public sculpture. Recently her work has become richer in colour and detail, with more complex layered elements, and a wider range of art historical and pop culture references in each work.
Julia has exhibited widely internationally and throughout Australia, showing at major institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, The National Gallery of Victoria, Geelong Gallery, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, The Art Gallery of Western Australia, and Heide Museum of Modern Art. Her works are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, the Monash University Museum of Art, and numerous private collections.
Most recently she has created “The Forties’, the inaugural Inside/Out Commission for the MCA, and she followed this with being commissioned as the MCA artist for Vivid Sydney this year. She is currently collaborating with Negative Press on a print making project to be exhibited shortly. Forthcoming exhibitions include “Princesse Pauline-Eleanore de Broglie”, at Caves, with Noriko Nakamura and Rob McHaffie, and “Act Casual”, a solo show at Sophie Gannon Gallery.
