White Cube is pleased to present Julie Curtiss’ first exhibition in Greater China, opening in September. The presentation features painting, sculpture and works on paper, as well as Curtiss’ first film work, a Surrealist narrative incorporating sculptural props made by the artist. The new works feature birds, insects and lush, tropical plants influenced by Curtiss’ new studio location in Florida.
Sparking parallels with art-historical depictions of Eden and Paradise, the motifs serve as fertile ground for the artist’s slyly humorous take on temptation, gender and sexuality.
A new edition, made by traditional Japanese woodblock printing, has been created on the occasion of this show.
