Julian Hoeber

Within Julian Hoeber’s body of work, he mines established art historical narratives to arrive at new breaks and fissures. In this context, his work resonances with Op Art and the conceptual strategies of the 1960s and 1970s (such as the work of Sol LeWitt) providing a strategic point of departure to explore irregularities within a given set of formal operations. Hoeber eschews distinctions between high and low culture, form and craft, emphasizing instead the materiality of each object to produce what the artist describes as, “conceptual art made with an interest in handcraft.”

Julian Hoeber has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe, including solo exhibitions at Blum and Poe, Los Angeles, Galleria Francesca Kaufmann, Milan, and Praz-Delavallade, Paris, as well as group exhibitions at the Santa Monica Museum of Art and the Deste Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art, Athens. He held his first museum solo exhibition at the Hammer Museum with a free-standing structure based on the architecture of “gravitational mystery spots.”
