Artist talk and demonstration - Julie York @ University of Manitoba
Julie York’s work deals with complex themes – means of processing information, cognition and recognition, how one sees and perceives objects – issues typically not explored within the ceramics medium. She is one of a handful of young makers currently redefining the use of clay in sculptural work and her efforts have been recognized. York received the Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 2007, the Independence Foundation Fellowship in 2006 and two Creative Production Grants from the Canada Council for the Arts.
Julie York is an Assistant Professor of Visual Arts and Material Practice at Emily Carr University, where she teaches in the Ceramics Department. She received her BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 1996 and her MFA from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2000. Subsequently she has held fellowships and residencies at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia and at the International Ceramic Research Centre, Guldagergaard, in Skaelskor, Denmark.
