Julieta Gil

Lecturer

Julieta Gil is a visual artist based in Mexico City. Her creative research incorporates three dimensional form. Whether it’s creating installation, sculpture, 3D renderings and animation, she works with computers as means to reflect on how we are altered by the digitization of our existence. She’s interested in the overlaps that occur in the interaction between physical and digital realities. Through her work, she creates narratives that reflect upon institutional pasts, presents, and futures.

She is currently interested in themes like feminism, subversive technologies, fiction and memory and how these can be used to resignify, reimagine and reshape our understanding of institutions, and monuments to be more precise.

Julieta holds an MFA from the Media Arts program at UCLA, and a B.Arch from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City.  In 2015-16, she was a grant recipient of Mexico’s National Fund for Culture and Arts in the field of art and technology research and production. Her work has been presented in spaces such as: the Laboratorio de Arte Alameda (Mexico City), the Nevada Museum of Art (Reno, NV), Palm Springs Art Museum (CA),  Future Gallery (Mexico City and Berlin), Human Resources (Los Angeles, CA), and Zuecca Projects (Venice, Italy).
