Tracing through her early major works, in this session Julie Rrap will discuss her career journey as one of Australia’s most acclaimed artists for over 35 years. Since the mid-1970’s Rrap has worked with a range of media including photography, painting, sculpture, performance and video in an ongoing project concerned with representations of the body.

Rrap will offer an insight into the importance of women artists bringing new imaginations and reinvigoration to the art world, as they re-write and re-establish the narrative of Art History.

Rrap will also discuss her experience as an educator in this session. Linking how passion and commitment to her own practice is significant in the mentorship and growth of her students.

Julie Rrap has been a major figure in Australian contemporary art for over thirty-five years. Since the mid-1970s, she has worked with photography, painting, sculpture, performance and video in an ongoing project concerned with representations of the body. Between 1986 and 1994 Rrap lived and worked in Europe. This opportunity grounded her work in a more international context, and she exhibited in Belgium, Switzerland, France, Holland, Germany and Italy as well as many national exhibitions including four Sydney Biennales.

In the Pacific Region, her work has appeared in the Auckland Triennale, Jakarta Biennale, Gyeonggi Museum, Korea and numerous Museums in Japan. In 1995, she held a survey of her work at ACCA, Melbourne and in 2007, a publication and 25-year survey Body Double was curated for the MCA, Sydney by Victoria Lynn. In 2015 Rrap was awarded the Vizard Foundation Contemporary Artist Project grant for a major exhibition, Remaking the World at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne. Her major new installation Write Me was commissioned for the Adelaide Biennale by curator Sebastien Goldspink as part of the 2022 Adelaide Festival.

Rrap’s works are held in major public collections in Australia as well as many private collections in Australia and overseas.
She exhibits with Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney and Arc 1 Gallery, Melbourne.
