Critic and curatorial residency program from Nice

Stay of Julia Geerlings in July 2017

ACROSS #12 – July 2017

Julia Geerlings (1985 – The Netherlands) is a freelance curator and writer based in Amsterdam and Paris.
She studied Art History at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Freie Universität Berlin. Geerlings writes regularly for Metropolis M, Tubelight, Museumtijdschrift and recently Frieze about the Dutch and French art scenes and she contributed to several publications: like the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten catalogue and Kunsthuis SYB biennial catalogue.
Geerlings became specialized in presenting contemporary art at unusual locations like a medieval church, a brutalist church, a canal house and a fortress a.o. In her curatorial practice, she has been influenced by the notions of ‘context responsive curating’, where the location and context (social, economic and political aspects) are included in the development of the project.
She is currently curator of Nachtelijke Dwalingen (Night Dwellings), the performance program at Oude Kerk Amsterdam, guest curator at Kunstfort in Vijfhuizen, tutor at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (school of Fine Arts Utrecht) and committee member at CBK Rotterdam Research & Development subsidy for artists.
From October 2016 to April 2017, she will be in New York for a residency at ISCP for six months.
