Julia Steiner

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Julia Steiner is an artist whose work deals with mental landscapes, where the act of drawing moves between thinking and taking action. Her works combine her interests in condensation, blank spaces and states of transition.

Julia was an artist-in-residence at Galerie Urs Meile, Beijing, from October 2009 to January 2010. She won the Swiss Art Award and the Kiefer Hablitzel grant in 2009 and received the Manor Art Award, canton Berne in 2010. She lives and works in Berne, Switzerland.

Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Switzerland

The Landis & Gyr foundation awards studio scholarships to Swiss artists and cultural professionals in London, Budapest, Sofia and Zug. Its London-based residency partnership with Acme was established in 1987, and provides six month long work/live opportunities for ten Swiss artists per year. Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field. Over two hundred visual artists, curators, writers, musicians and composers have benefitted from the programme. Residencies are based in Stepney, E1 and are available to Swiss residents only
