Julia Csekö

Csekö was born in Colorado and grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She is currently a Visiting Artist at Emerson College for the Summer of 2020 and has a public mural on view at Winter Place, downtown Boston, commissioned by the Boston Downtown BID, and created in partnership with the Boston Literary District. In 2018 Csekö was invited to the Assets for Artists MassMoCA residency program where she further investigated her multi-disciplinary practice as a sculptor, painter, and performer. She was recently invited for a six months residency at the Umbrella Art Center beginning in September 2020. Csekö moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 2010 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University.

Her most recent work gravitates around social experiments grounded on a paradigm shift from competitive to collaborative mindset in social actions and interactions. Csekö is the recipient of a 2016 Walter Feldman Fellowship, awarded by the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston. She divides her time between being a Practicing Artist and an Art Administrator having worked in several cultural organizations and non-profits in New England, including the MFA, ICA, PEM, and Villa Victoria Center for the Arts (IBA).
