Julie Ault (b. 1957) is an artist best-known for her work with Group Material, a New York-based collaborative active in the 1980s and 1990s. In addition to her work with Group Material and other ongoing collaborations, Ault's own practice has her assuming the roles of writer, curator, and editor. She has written extensively on—and often in collaboration with—a number of artists and filmmakers including, among others, Sister Corita Kent, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, James Benning, and Danh Vo. Ault will discuss her career and current projects with David Breslin, Associate Director of the Research and Academic Program. Ault's practice is also the subject of a graduate seminar in the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art led by Breslin.
