Julie Orser received her MFA in Studio Art from California Institute of the Arts. Her artistic practice is a convergence of art and cinema challenging the visual and aural authority that Hollywood cinema possesses to promote feminist perspectives and alternative forms of viewer engagement. Her video art projects and multi-media installations have exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Luckman Gallery (Los Angeles), Shoshana Wayne Gallery (Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin), The Gallery Loop (Seoul), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), Il Magazzino d’Arte Moderna (Rome), Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Kunstraum Innsbruck (Austria), The Armory Center for the Arts, Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, and Ann Arbor Film Festival. Orser is a recipient of CCF Visual Artist Fellowship (2010) and CCI Investing in Artists grants (2009, 2014). She is professor and area head of the creative photography & experimental media program at California State University, Fullerton.
