Julie Gough is an installation, sound and video artist and writer. She is also a curator of First People’s Art and Culture at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart. She is a Trawlwoolway woman whose Briggs-Johnson-Gower family have lived in the Latrobe region of North West Tasmania since the 1840s, with Tebrikunna their Traditional Country in far northeastern Lutruwita (Tasmania).
Gough’s research and art practice involves uncovering and re-presenting subsumed and often conflicting histories, and frequently draws on her own and her family’s experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. She holds a PhD from the University of Tasmania (2001) and an MA University of London, Goldsmith College (1998).
Since 1994 Julie has exhibited in more than 130 exhibitions and her work is held in most state and national collections in Australia including the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of West Australia, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and National Museum of Australia.
