This month, Art Collector magazine has released their GLOBAL ISSUE, which includes a profile on artist and composer Julian Day. As part of the ‘Global Warming’ section that presents five artists who have recently been heating up the world stage, Julian’s work on an international platform is featured alongside Patricia Piccinini, Dane Mitchell, Heather B. Swann, and Vincent Namatjira. Kate Britton writes of Julian’s reputation across the USA, UK and Germany, citing recent work at the Orange County Museum of Art (2017) and Tate Modern (2018). The artist says of this year’s LEFT LEFT RIGHT RIGHT, “I remember standing outside Tate Modern 10 years ago, vowing to one day present work in its spaces … This year that dream came true.” Julian has moved to New York to undertake his MFA at Colombia University with the Samstag Scholarship, which he was awarded at the end of last year.
Also in Art Collector’s GLOBAL ISSUE is a piece by Jane O’Sullivan, asking if global success is a golden ticket for Australian artists? Jane interviewed Dominik Mersch and Michael Staniak to find out what effect international success has on a local artist’s market back home. Both agree that prices have to be set globally and Dominik reveals that collectors want to see artists succeed overseas, but sales of new work can suffer when prices rise. Dominik reveals that “it was in fact collectors who helped [Janet] Laurence fund a major climate change project in Paris.” Read the whole article in the current Oct-Dec 2018 issue of Art Collector.
