'Transcending the traditions of abstraction, Minimalism and Post-Minimalism ... Dault is a daring and adventurous artist, who pushes the boundaries of painting and sculpture.'
– Emily Colucci
'If I don't learn something new with each piece, then it's not worth it. I am often attracted to materials that push against the very fine line between beautiful and hideous. I'm often looking to thwart my own 'good' taste.'
– Julia Dault
Julia Dault is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. This year she has presented solo exhibitions at Jessica Bradley, Toronto, and Galerie Bob van Orsouw, Zurich, and is included in the group exhibitions "Outside the Lines" at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and "Americana: Selections from the Collection" at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Her next solo exhibitions are at International Art Objects in Los Angeles (April 2014) and Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York (October 2014).
She previously presented a solo exhibition as part of the series "Inside the White Cube" at White Cube Bermondsey, London, and participated in "Roundtable," the Ninth Gwangju Biennale, and "The Ungovernables," the second New Museum Triennial. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; the Museum of Modern Art Warsaw; and the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
Dault comes by her art-historical bona fides naturally, having grown up in Toronto in a family involved in the arts. Her mother, Maggie Crawford, taught art in high schools and headed the art department of the Scarborough Board of Education; her father is the Canadian art critic and painter Gary Michael Dault. Julia herself has worked as a professional critic, as well, until 2006. At that point, Dault decided to become a serious artist. She enrolled in the graduate program in fine arts at Parsons in New York, receiving her MFA in 2008. Her work began appearing in group exhibitions almost immediately after her graduation, with solo shows at New York's Blackston Gallery in 2010 and at London's White Cube Bermondsey this summer as part of its "Inside the White Cube" series.
