Julie Gough is an artist, writer and curator who lives in Hobart, Tasmania. Her research and art practice involves uncovering and re-presenting subsumed and often conflicting histories, often referring to her own and family’s experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people.  

Julie has held 18 solo exhibitions and exhibited in more than 100 group shows since 1994 including The Clemenger Award, NGV (2009), Biennale of Sydney (2006), Liverpool Biennale, UK (1999), Perspecta, AGNSW (1995).  

In her Art Forum presentation, Julie will discuss her exhibition The Lost World (part 1), currently at CAST Gallery. The Lost World (part 1) demonstrates the cultural vortex experienced by the artist, as she inhabits past and present simultaneously. Testing her obsession with the diary of the corrupt lay missionary George Augustus Robinson, Gough works to make her way out of the text and into the present by undertaking a series of ‘tasks of encounter’ while moving through Tasmanian time and space.
