Julie Harvey shakes up the art world once again with her first highly anticipated solo exhibition “COLOR TEMPO”. Looking through the lens of a
microscope, Harvey layer by layer creates an idealized world of effervescent movement and impossible color. Intrigued by dance, Harvey ’s
paintings focus on the contemporary human figure and how individual gestures reflect and celebrate a person’s identity. With Harvey ’s
outlandish and fearless disposition, this show will be anything but ordinary. Curated by Laura O’Reilly and Michael Namer.
Julie Harvey is an artist whose work focuses on the contemporary human
figure as subject. She graduated BFA, Magna Cum Laude from Virginia
Commonwealth University and received her MFA from Parsons School of
Design in New York. She has lived and worked in New York City for the past
24 years in order to experience the liveliness of her subject matter.
Ms. Harvey has exhibited her paintings in New York with the Bernarducci-
Meisel Gallery, Kathleen Cullen, and Kenise Barnes, amongst others. The
Museum of Modern Art’s research center displayed Ms. Harvey’s work in
“Documenting Feminist Past: An Artworld Critique, 1960 to Now.” She has
also exhibited throughout the United States as well as Europe, and has
been featured in many television documentaries and news programs on
WCBS, WPIX, and PBS stations. Ms. Harvey has worked on projects with
well-known artists such as Laurie Anderson and The Paul Taylor Dance
Company. She has created, produced, and directed some of New York’s
most memorable multimedia events that have included musicians, dancers,
video, lighting designers, and visual artists. In September 2009 she created
and choreographed a dance ensemble that took place within the Matisse
gallery at the Museum of Modern Art as part of the video series “30
Seconds” by filmmaker Thilo Hoffmann.
