Julie Poitras-Santos, Core Faculty
Julie Poitras Santos creates temporary works of site-specific performance, and installations using a diversity of media. Employing methods of dialogue, research and translation, she enacts ritual pathways, exploring the landscape of liminal space and the bridge. Her work creates narratives that investigate these places of connection. Poitras Santos’ solo and collaborative work has been exhibited internationally at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, Reykjanesbaer Art Museum in Iceland and at the Centre for Contemporary Culture in Barcelona, Spain, among others. She has attended residencies and created performances and projects in Vermont, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Iceland. Previously, she taught Sculpture at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and while living in Barcelona from 2004-2007 she worked as the Artistic Director of Can Serrat, a residency program. She received her BS from Tufts University in 1990, and her MFA from the University of Colorado in 2000. She lives in Portland, Maine.
