About

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 premiered at Young Projects from November 2015 to February 2016. The exhibition received critical attention in Artforum, The L.A. Times, KCRW and Gizmodo. Weitz has had recent solo and two person exhibitions at Agency in Los Angeles, CA (2014), The Suburban in Oak Park, IL (2013), and Ware:Wolf:Haus in Dallas, TX (2014). Before moving to L.A. in 2013, Weitz taught painting and drawing as Associate Professor of Art at the University of South Florida for eight years.
