Julia Holderness is an artist based in Ōtautahi Christchurch. In 2022 she completed a PhD project exploring the construction of art-historical narratives with a particular focus on the histories of modernist women artists. In creating narratives that might or might not have existed, her research practice deliberates on the role of fiction in both the collection and interpretation of material histories.
Holderness has staged a number of significant exhibition projects throughout Aotearoa, including The Studio which was presented at Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 2021 and The National in 2022 and Schemes for Vibrant Living, her final PhD exhibition at Te Wai Ngutu Kākā Gallery, AUT in 2022.
