Julie is a Hobart based artist, writer and curator. Her matriarchal Aboriginal lineage is Trawlwoolway from Tebrikunna in far north east Tasmania, and her paternal heritage is Scottish and Irish. Dr Gough's research and art practice involves uncovering and re-presenting often conflicting and subsumed histories, many referring to her family's experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Her work in installation, sound and video invite an audience to a closer understanding of our proximity to, and continuing roles in unresolved national stories - narratives of memory, time, absence, location and representation. Since 1994 Gough has exhibited in more than 130 exhibitions including: Defying Empire, National Gallery of Australia, 2017; THE NATIONAL, MCA, 2017; With Secrecy and Despatch, Campbelltown Arts Centre,2016; undisclosed, National Gallery of Australia, 2012; Biennial of Sydney, 2006; Liverpool Biennial, UK, 2001; Perspecta, AGNSW, 1995. Julie holds a PhD from the University of Tasmania (2001) and a Masters degree (Visual Arts) University of London, Goldsmiths College (1998), as well as Bachelor degrees in Visual Arts, Prehistory and English Literature.
