Welch Visiting Artist and Scholar Series: Julian Hoeber

Julian Hoeber is an artist, writer and teacher. His work explores the structural and biomorphic, mathematical and intuitive. For the past few years, Hoeber has been working on a project called “Going Nowhere,” which is centered on the design of a massive imaginary architectural structure. Originally planned as a non-functional airport terminal, the project has evolved into something far less defined, cribbing ideas from playground design, utopian modernism, and psychotherapy. The point of this project is to concoct and then solve a seemingly endless set of problems in the process of creating structure that operates as an architectural metaphor for the radical potential of introspection.

Julian Hoeber (b. 1974, Philadelphia, PA) has a BA in Art History from Tufts University, a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and an MFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena. He has had solo exhibitions at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Blum&Poe, Los Angeles, Harris Lieberman, New York, Praz-Delavallade, Paris, and Jessica Silverman Gallery, San Francisco. His work is in numerous permanent public collections including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), MOCA Los Angeles, Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), The Rubell Family Collection (Miami), Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas, TX), Nasher Sculture Center (Dallas, TX) and Deste Foundation (Athens). His writing has been published in Frieze Magazine, Modern Painters, and Art in America. Hoeber lives and works in Los Angeles.
