News / Julia Wachtel in Artforum + Vanity Fair

“In comparing these figures, the artist prompts us to ask where the real power lies — totalitarian military might or Web-age celebrity — and how the mass media work to reinforce or undermine its status. It’s an area that Wachtel, influenced by the Pictures generation, has been exploring since the 1980s.” -Michael Wilson, Artforum

“Julia Wachtel’s pictures are the stuff of serious play — a poetic simulation of everything wonderful and horrible all at once, part pop culture, part formal, abstract construction.” -A.M. Homes, Vanity Fair

Julia Wachtel’s most recent exhibition at the gallery, Empowerment, has been reviewed in the September issue of Artforum and October issue of Vanity Fair.
