"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 examine the experience of embodiment in the digital realm. 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 featured the sensory phenomenon known as ASMR, premiered at Young Projects in Los Angeles in 2015-2016 and received critical attention in Artforum, The L.A. Times, Hyperallergic, Gizmodo and on KCRW. Other recent solo exhibitions include 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 is a regular contributor at Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles and is currently working on a new video project, photographic series and collaborative VR project. Her forthcoming video The Hand Network opens September 9, 2017 at Chimento Contemporary in Los Angeles.
