The Koerner Artist in Residence Program is an annual professional residency in the Fine Art Program (Visual Art) at Queen's University. The residency program provides students with unique access to mentorship from a celebrated artist, and gives the artist a chance to share their expertise.

For Kingston and area community members, the program offers a platform whereby contemporary art is shared and articulated. The residency is an integrated itinerary of classroom activities, studio time, one-to-one critiques, and opportunities to build relationships with students, faculty members and community artists.

Julia Dault, born in Toronto, is a painter and sculptor based in Brooklyn, NY. Her one-off sculptures of Formica and Plexiglas - created in a few hours on-site at a gallery, rather than over several weeks in the studio - have won her wide recognition. She received her BA in art history from McGill University in 2001 and her MFA from Parsons in 2008. In between, among other activities, she worked as a critic for the National Post. Dault's sculptural materials recall a Minimalist aesthetic while her process speaks to traditions of performance and live art. Her paintings are mainly abstract, often created out of layers of textiles, paint and (again, often) Plexiglas. Her work broke through to wider attention as part of the 2012 New Museum Triennial in New York; since then, she has exhibited at London's White Cube, the Gwangju Biennale and the Marrakech Biennale. Dault's next solo exhibition is at the International Art Objects Galleries in Los Angeles in April 2014. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Saatchi Gallery and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
