"Weitz's videos juxtapose the physical, textural experience of living with the more remote digital universe in which we're so often immersed," Deborah Vankin, LA Times
Julie Weitz is a visual artist based in Los Angeles. Her videos, installations and photographs explore the sensorial experience of the body in the digital realm and consider the social, political and psychological dimensions of virtual identity. She uses physical props, often cast from her own body parts, and combines "anti-CGI" aesthetics to make work that blurs the boundaries between sensory perception and material reality. Weitz's immersive video installation Touch Museum, which premiered at Young Projects in Los Angeles in 2015-16, explored the sensory phenomenon known as ASMR. The exhibition received critical attention in Artforum, The L.A. Times, Hyperallergic, Gizmodo and on KCRW. Her newest video project The Hand Network: Humdog, A Prelude is currently on view at Chimento Contemporary in Los Angeles through Oct 28, 2017 and resurrects the critical writings of cyber-pioneer Carmen Hermosillo. Weitz has had solo exhibitions at Archer School in Los Angeles, CA (2016), Cunsthaus in Tampa, FL (2016), Agency in Los Angeles, CA (2014), and The Suburban in Oak Park, IL (2013). Before moving to Los Angeles in 2013, Weitz was a tenured professor at the University of South Florida. She currently teaches at local colleges in Los Angeles and is a regular contributor at Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles.
