For many years Julie Langsam has used the landscape as a site on which to combine images referencing the romantic sublime of the 19th century with the 20th century’s utopian ideals of modernism, to examine ideas about ‘nature’ and ‘progress’ within the context of the 21st century. Recent travels of over 30,00 miles across the country has yielded a body of work taking multiple forms--- painting, drawing, photography, and filmmaking--- that collectively views the landscape as a record of past and present; a place where various ideologies and beliefs such as sovereignty, agency, ownership, and stewardship of land and natural resources are contested. Langsam has exhibited nationally and internationally. Solo exhibitions include Gallery Thomas Jaeckel; Frederieke Taylor Gallery; 
and Michael Steinberg Fine Art in NYC; Maass Gallery at SUNY Purchase and MOCA Cleveland, among others. She is the recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award and is represented in collections throughout the US and Europe. Langsam is Associate Professor at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.
