Top 30 (en 3 temps)
May 2 - June 13, 2009
reception Sat. March 2, 7-9pm


The title of the project at 2nd Cannons is “Top 30 (en 3 temps)”. The drawings in the exhibition where made in 2008 and 2009 when I was living in a suitcase traveling and attending artist residencies. Because I was isolated and far from my comforting everyday, I began to wonder what I had been doing all my life. And then I started thinking about the idea of turning 30. I looked back and created a narrative for each year of my life. The drawings in the exhibition were used as props in the video component of the project. A segment of this video project will be shown over the summer in the exhibition curated by Dave Burns, “Drama of the Gifted Child”, at the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, CA. Julie would like to thank Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, the KHN fellowship, and the California Community Foundation for their generous support.
