April 17th through 23rd, DC visual artist Julie Wolfe will be in residence at Two Coats of Paint. Forming an ongoing research-based practice, Wolfe’s conceptual work explores studies for possible futures, alternative and marginalized ways-of-knowing, salvage practices, and the relationship of human activity to Earth systems. Through reconfiguring and recontextualizing salvaged materials, she assembles images, sculptures, drawings and situations that enable moments of envisioning and point to a new urgency and need for action as we continue to see a breakdown in our social and ecological systems.
Wolfe’s work is exhibited and collected internationally and has been reviewed and featured in ARTnews, BBC America and Hyperallergic. Her most recent solo exhibition was at American University Katzen Museum and she is preparing for a residency in Amsterdam, Netherlands and an exhibition in Berlin, Germany.
Please join us for an Open Studio on Friday, April 21st, 6-8 pm, to meet the artist and see her work.
