Julian Hoeber (b. 1974, Philadelphia, PA) holds a BA in Art History from Tufts University, Medford, MA, a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA and an MFA from the ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA. Hoeber is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice centers on themes such as the problem of the proximity of thought and form, intuitive processes within geometrical compositional systems, and the quest to combine conceptualist strategies (mind) with that which is experiential (body). For Hoeber, many of the binary categories used to define art, culture, and social relations are non-functional or imperfect. Rather than operating as polarities, categories such as interior and exterior, psychic and somatic, rational and irrational, are able to occupy the same space in his work. Hoeber harnesses rigor and exactitude in service of the emotional and idiosyncratic, revealing that his conceptual strategies and modes of inquiry are subjective and poetic. Going Nowhere, a years-long endeavor to design an architectural structure in the shape of the artist’s thinking is explored through tromp l’oeil paintings, architecturally inspired sculpture, and drawing. 

Hoeber’s work is featured in public and private collections internationally including Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX; DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, TX; Rosenblum Collection, Paris, France; Rubell Family Collection, Miami, FL; Francis Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY; and the Western Bridge Museum, Seattle, WA. Julian Hoeber lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
