Julian Walker

Julian Walker has over the past 14 years worked with museums, collections and preserved sites and objects, using installation, drawing, video, photography, text, live-art and sculpture. Recent exhibitions include: Births, Chimneys and Lightermen, 2008, at Millennium Square, North Greenwich; Words and Forgetting, 2007, King’s Lynn; Encounters with Objects, 2006, at the Hunt Museum, Limerick; Art Out of Place, 2005 at Norwich Castle Museum; New Contemporaries, 1999 at Beaconsfield, London and the Liverpool Biennial, where his vast grid installation on the destruction of the Liverpool Museum was singled out for praise by Jonathan Jones.

He has worked with several UK museums, and was The Natural History Museum’s first artist in residence. His interventionist work includes In The Picture, 2000, at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, where he felt the entire surface of an eighteenth century painting, and Mr & Mrs Walker have moved, 1998, where with his partner and son he moved into Kettle’s Yard, under CCTV surveillance, to test Jim Ede’s thesis that “art is better appreciated in the intimate surroundings of a home.”
