SUMMER 2019—“TOUCH SCREEN,” CO-CURATED BY JULIA, AT GALERIE ANTOINE ERTASKIRAN, MONTREAL
Julia has co-curated the summer exhibition at Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran in Montreal. Featuring Steven Beckly, Marie-Claire Blais, Jessica Eaton, Gerald Ferguson, Molly Haynes, Mårten Lange, Ruby Sky Stiler, and Hannah Whitaker, the exhibition’s artists evoke partitions, scrims, and portals. The artworks presented here seem to push back and forth across thresholds, but the screens they evoke are anything but those of our electronic devices. Instead, materials and close observation—of the world, of mark-making—are gateways to form and meaning.
