Painting in New York
Daughter of a Vietnamese father and a French mother, Julie Curtiss (1982) studied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris and graduated in 2006. She now lives and works in Brooklyn.
Painting, sculpture and drawing: the lines and colors are sharp and immediately recognizable. Her work deploys a black humor in which female figures dominate. Silhouettes with forked nails, long hair, often faceless, they irrigate the canvases with a dark energy.
Two galleries represent her: Anton Kern (New York) and White Cube (London).
She dialogues with Clara Schulmann, art critic, who teaches theory at the Beaux-Arts de Paris. Last published work: Zizanies (Paraguay Press, 2020)
Penser le Present is produced with the support of Société Générale.
The video will be available the next day on Facebook and Youtube, D+7 as a podcast on the Appli des Beaux-Arts de Paris.
