Curator's Biography

Julia Pine is a Canadian writer and curator who specializes in twentieth and twenty-first century North American visual culture. She holds BAs in English Literature (University of Toronto) and Art History (Carleton University), and a PhD in Cultural Mediations with a specialization in Visual Culture (Carleton University). Her growing list of publications ranges from the popular to the scholarly, and focuses primarily on art, visual culture, print culture, critical theory, the Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, theories and objects of popular/mass culture, and fashion history and theory.

In 2008-09, Pine was a Research Fellow in Canadian Art at the National Gallery of Canada, where she conducted research on dress and identity in contemporary Canadian art. Fashionality: Dress and Identity in Contemporary Canadian Art is the result of this project. Pine has just completed a two-year Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council post-doctoral fellowship through the Centre for the Study of Surrealism and its Legacies at the University of Essex in Colchester, England. Working under the supervision of Surrealism scholar Dawn Ades, her research looked at Salvador Dalí’s large body of portraits, as well as his paintings of the Spanish Civil War and World War II period.
