VSC Virtual Visiting Artist Talk: Julie Weitz

VSC Virtual Visiting Artist Talk: Julie Weitz

Weitz will discuss how her work uses humor and ritual to propose ethically-grounded and intersectional reconsiderations of pressing contemporary issues. In 2017, Weitz created her performative project My Golem, which centers on her embodiment of the mythical creature drawn from Jewish mysticism and Yiddish folklore. A futuristic highly-stylized figure covered with white mud, she was brought to life to respond to contemporary challenges including climate catastrophe, white supremacy, antisemitism, and xenophobia.

Weitz has been featured in Artforum, Art in America, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, BOMB, LA Confidential, Photograph Magazine, Hyperallergic, and on KCRW. Her first solo museum exhibition opened at The Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco, CA) in June 2021. Weitz is a 2020-21 Cultural Trailblazer of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and a Wallis Annenberg Helix Fellow at Yiddishkayt. She has received grants from the California Center for Cultural Innovation, The Banff Centre, Asylum Arts, and the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture. Weitz currently teaches in Los Angeles and is a contributing writer to Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles. She also founded the Instagram account @Jews4BlackLives, which serves as an educational hub for the Jewish activist community in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

David Stromeyer: Walk Through the Meadows with the Artist

David Stromeyer: Walk Through the Meadows with the Artist

Last year, Park co-founder David Stromeyer marked his 50th year of making art on Cold Hollow’s land by creating and siting three new sculptures. At this public talk, Stromeyer will introduce us to the triad and discuss how they represent the various forces that drive him to make.

This event is free. Please register on Eventbrite.

About David Stromeyer

For fifty years David Stromeyer has lived the vision that shapes his art and his life. Such a vision is a ruthless taskmaster. There is nothing his art demands that he will not do. He works the steel cold, and mostly alone. Wildly creative yet deliberate and disciplined, he pushes up against the limits of materials, tools, and techniques. Steel, humble element of earth and structural workhorse, in Stromeyer's hands becomes a plastic medium. He plays with perception, showing that steel can appear to be everything you think it is not. Each finished piece embodies the spirit and identity of place and maker. But always the work evolves as technique and imagination reach for the next horizon. Like his art, a paradox of innovation and endurance, Stromeyer has proved himself an American treasure.

A yarn-bomber before there was a word for it, her most recent pubic project, was a crocheted cover for an SUV, made for a Canadian Cultural Capital Festival in Sackville, New Brunswick, and it landed her on the Colbert Report in December, 2008. This car cozy has had an afterlife at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, on Earth Day, 2010 at the Blue Mountain Lake Museum in 2011 and in Athens, New York in 2012. This event is free and open to the public and takes place on Zoom.
