Julie Murray films and videos
Using combinations of found and original footage, Irish-born New Yorker Julie Murray makes subtle and eloquent films that imbue banal images and everyday sounds with an other-worldly charge, a sense of mystery and menace. -Chris Gehman, Cinematheque Ontario

Born in Dublin, Ireland, Murray received a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. While creating and exhibiting paintings and photographs in San Francisco she extended her investigations into the area of experimental filmmaking. In 1993 Murray moved to New York and since that time her work has screened at the New York Film Fesitval, the Rotterdam International Film Festival, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the San Francisco Cinematheque, Centre George Pompidou, Paris, and the London Filmmakers Co-op. The Museum of Modern Art Archives has acquired Murray’s films for their archives. She is currently living and working in Milwaukee.
