Julia Phillips '15 In Solo Exhibition at MoMA PS1

May 28, 2018

Visual Arts Alumna Julia Phillips '15 is featuring her work in a solo exhibition titled, Julia Phillips: Failure Detection, at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, NY. Julia Phillips: Failure Detection is Phillips’ fourth solo exhibit. Previously, Phillips has had solo exhibitions in London and Hamburg.


Julia Phillips: Failure Detection features “six newly commissioned major works alongside existing sculptures. Primarily working with ceramics, New York-based Phillips creates objects and scenes that are intimately connected to the body,” according to the museum’s website. Her sculptures represent how “the body is materially, linguistically, and metaphorically entangled in politics.” The exhibit was listed in Interview magazine’s article, “Eight spring art shows we can’t wait to see,” alongside shows by artists such as Judy Dater and the late Azzedine Alaïa. Phillips was also named one of “19 artists to watch next year” in a New York Times article published in December 2017.


Recently, Phillips wrapped up her group exhibition at the New Museum titled, 2018 Triennial: Songs for Sabotage, which featured the work of emerging artists from around the world who are “shaping the current discourse of contemporary art and the future of culture.”


Julia Phillips: Failure Detection runs through September 3rd, 2018.
