Julie Curtiss

Lune (2021) | Augmented Reality

Julie Curtiss examines intimacy and privacy in public in her work Lune, 2021. The artist is known for making her paintings appear like sculptural works; however, Lune, 2021 is the first time she has brought one of them to life using AR. Here she depicts a nude woman with her back turned. To the frustration of the viewer, she constantly avails our gaze, actively challenging the spectator.


The artist introduces her first AR artwork Lune as part of The Looking Glass show at The Shed in New York.
