About

Julie Schenkelberg grew up in the post-industrial landscape of Cleveland, Ohio. Her mixed-media installations start with furniture, dishware, textiles, and marble, combined with concrete, resin, and construction materials, to transform notions of domesticity, and engage with the American Rust Belt’s legacy of abandonment and decay. Using the home as a playground for formal and conceptual subversions, the work aggressively disrupts cohesion within the physical sphere. Familiar furnishings rekindle memories or premonitions of collapse, suggesting both the utter destruction of war, calamities, or urban decay, but also the uncanny juxtapositions of fragile substances such as cloth and china, with industrial materials such as rusty metal, heavy concrete, and tool-made marks such as drilled holes and chain-sawed indentations.

Julie Schenkelberg received a BA in art history at the College of Wooster, OH, and an MFA at the School of Visual Arts, NY, with additional studies at SAIC at Oxbow, MI, Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art, France, and the Institute of European Studies, Vienna. Her large-scale installations have been displayed in solo exhibitions at The Sculpture Center, Cleveland, and most recently at the Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art, Pittsburgh. Schenkelberg won the 2014 ArtPrize Installation Juried Award with the curatorial group SiTE:LAB. She has received two National Endowment for the Arts Grants, a Harpo Foundation Grant, and was awarded a residency at The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha. Her work has also been included in group exhibitions at 601 Artspace, New York, Storefront Ten Eyck, Brooklyn, A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, and Station Independent, New York. Press includes Artforum, Bloomberg, Hyperallergic, The Brooklyn Rail, Art F City, The Huffington Post, Beautiful Decay and Ground Magazine, and she has been named one of "30 Artists to Watch" by NY Arts Magazine.
