Julia Scher



Julia Scher creates work that addresses electronic security and surveillance in our culture. Her temporary and transitory web/installation/performance works explore issues of power, control and seduction. Her spoken word CD's and installations have been exhibited worldwide in physical art spaces - including solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York, and Schipper and Krome in Berlin - as well as on the World Wide Web and the Electra recording label. She is the recipient of many grants and fellowships including a Bunting Institute Fellowship for Surveillance Studies at Harvard University, 1996-1997. She was born in 1954 in Hollywood, California.

"Scher is one of a number of emerging artists who deliberately misuse technology to expose its hidden ideological mechanisms. Demonstrating our complicity in the proliferating technologies used to surveil both our physical and virtual identities, she toys with the notion of scopophilia, the cheap, reflexive thrill of looking." -Andrew Hultkrans in ArtForum
