Julieta Gil (born 1987, Mexico City) is a Mexican artist currently based in Oregon. She holds a Bachelors in Architecture from Universidad Iberoamericana and a MFA from UCLA, Media Arts. Gil’s work explores relationships between spatial and material memory through diverse forms of media. Her recent interest is focused on documenting monuments as sites where imposed narratives are confronted with collective forms of telling and remembering.
Understanding technology as an extension of the self, Gil explores ways to make meaning through it, often using subversive approaches. Her process originates from routine walks, thoroughly observing and documenting her surroundings. Gil’s most often used record-keeping system consists of a photogrammetric scanning procedure, traditionally used to create 3D models as simulations of physical objects. During this process, she devises methodologies that register and catalog her bodily interaction with these objects, and reconfigures and materializes them into works that exist as negotiations between traditional forms of archive and counter-archive or other forms of memory.
In 2020, Gil received the Lumen Prize for Art and Technology for her project “Nuestra Victoria”, envisioned as a response to government censorship around a prominent Mexico City monument which served as a site of protest and intervention by feminist groups. Gil has exhibited at Nevada Museum of Art, Palm Spring Art Museum, SCAD Museum of Art, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Museo Tamayo, Laboratorio de arte Alameda, Centro de Cultura Digital, among other institutions. She is currently Art & Tech Visiting Professor within the Department of Art at the University of Oregon.
