Julie Weber is an artist and educator based in Chicago, IL. Working conceptually within the framework of photography, Weber is interested in the medium as subject matter through exploration of photographic materiality and process. Photography's documental yet ephemeral nature, its simultaneous presence as both image and object, and its changeable relation to perceptibility are core tenets of her work.
Recent solo exhibitions include "re | process" at The Alice Wilds (Milwaukee, WI) and "re | materialize" at Seerveld Gallery (Palos Heights, IL). Weber's work has been featured nationally in exhibitions at SF Camerawork (San Francisco, CA), Cressman Center for Visual Arts (Louisville, KY), photo-eye Gallery (Santa Fe, NM), Silver Eye Center for Photography (Pittsburgh, PA), Illinois State Museum (Lockport, IL), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago, IL), and internationally at The Polygon Gallery (North Vancouver, BC, Canada), Stour Space (London, UK), and The Reference (Seoul, South Korea). Her limited edition artist book, "REMNANTS", was published by Skylark Editions (2017) and was selected by the Lucie Foundation for the Month of Photography Los Angeles Photo Book Exhibition (2018). Weber was a FotoFilmic shortlist photographer (2018) and an artist-in-residence at the Chicago Artists Coalition (2015). She received a BA from Dominican University (2006) and earned her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago (2014). Weber has taught at Dominican University, Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, and currently teaches at Waubonsee Community College and Northern Illinois University.
