Julha Franz, 2019
Coming from a place of sexual and gender liberation, Julha Franz (Brazil, 1993) pushes boundaries with her own body. Through the language of performance art, she creates new forms of imposed body and social identities. She has been awarded artistic residencies in Venice, Italy, 2017, and Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2015 and 2014. She has participated in collective exhibitions, mainly art performance festivals, such as VERBO – Galeria Vermelho (where she participated in two consecutive editions in 2017 and 2018). In 2018, she was nominated for the French Aliance Contemporary Art Award.
