About Julia

Julia Claire Wallace is a Houston based artist that works in a variety of media, including performance, video, social practice, spoken word, painting and writing. She has performed with and without permission in a variety of contexts, from art galleries to bars to grocery stores. She grew up in Houston, Texas and received her BFA in painting from the University of Houston in 2009. She has served as a facilitator to Performance Art Lab, one of Houston’s most mischievous art collectives, and was one of the founding members of their guerilla flash dance project sexyATTACK. She is the creator and curator of Houston’s Performance Art Night, an event that strengthened the growing performance art scene in Houston. She is also the founder and co-facilitator of Continuum, a social sculpture consisting of a group of performance artists joined in the aspiration to create a safe and encouraging space to grow through performance art. Her personal art is often a cathartic exploration of desire, the body, and personal experience. Her art described as being shockingly honest, paired with an intimate sincerity. She happily lives in a cozy one bedroom apartment with her beautiful daughter and her partner, John (the wonderful and talented lead singer/guitarist of the local band Muhammadali).
