Julia Kouneski investigates empathy, embodiment, and the fluidity of the self through a multidisciplinary practice spanning performance, video/film, and participatory projects. She received her MFA in Studio Art from the University of Southern California, and has independently studied somatic movement and bodywork practices over the last 10 years that contribute to her research of the body and performance. Her work has been shown in spaces such as Night Gallery (Los Angeles), Annka Kultys Gallery (London), and De Hallen Haarlem Museum (Netherlands), and has been supported by grants from the Jerome Foundation and the Rema Hort Mann Foundation. She is a former artist of the Studio Artist Program at the Atlanta Contemporary, and has guest taught and lectured at Otis College of Art and Design (Los Angeles), Goldsmiths University (London), Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MN), Macalester College (St Paul, MN), and Emory University (Atlanta, GA).
