"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, photographs and drawings 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, and employs practical film effects to construct a virtual world devoid of humans but filled with the desire for somatic connection. Weitz has had solo exhibitions at Young Projects in Los Angeles, CA, Chimento Contemporary in Los Angeles, CA, Cunthaus in Tampa, FL, and the Suburban in Oak Park, IL. Her work has been featured in Artforum, Art in America, The L.A. Times, The New York Times, L.A. Confidential, Photograph Magazine, Hyperallergic and on KCRW's Art Talk. Before moving to Los Angeles in 2013, Weitz was a tenured professor at the University of South Florida. She currently teaches in L.A. and is a regular contributor at Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles.
