About Julie Rrap
Julie Rrap’s involvement with body art and performance in the mid-70s in Australia continued to influence her practice as it expanded into photography, painting, sculpture and video in an on-going project concerned with representations of the body. For the August ARTBAR, Julie is curating a program comprised of students from the Sydney College of the Arts, bringing video art, music and interactive spaces to the fore!
