Santa Barbara Museum of Art's Contemporary Art Curator
Since 2008, Julie Joyce has been bringing the best in contemporary art to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, while also including Santa Barbara artists in that list.
Under her curation, she's brought the newest and most challenging of examples of contemporary art to the Museum, including group shows like "Labor and Wait" and "Totally '80s" and also introduced Santa Barbara to artists like Yinka Shonibare, Tony de los Reyes, Michelle Stuart, and Charles Garabedian.
We talk about her life story, theories of art, and my personal bugaboo, the turgid miasma of academic art writing.
You can follow the museum at www.sbma.net and they're on Twitter and Instagram as sbmuseart
