Episode 64: Julia Fenton

Julia Fenton is, in her own words, an artist, retired curator, retired arts administrator, and gardener. At 76 years old she’s been a founding member, editor, and director of many of the organizations dear to the Atlanta arts scene, including what are now Art Papers and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. In this special, 1 1/2 hour podcast (stream-able in 2 parts on BurnAway.org) she describes the shock of “The Feminine Mystique,” the trials of being an ambitious woman in the 70’s, and her experiences and lessons learned in her career. What you’re about to hear is, according to Julia, “history you’re probably not aware of; this is artists taking control of their lives.”

In Part 1: From Mississippi to Princeton to Atlanta: details of her early practice, student days at the Atlanta College of Art, and founding the Contemporary Art Southeast Magazine and the Atlanta Art Workers Coalition

In Part 2: Curating, the ‘96 Olympics, grief, and a return to Atlanta: the evolution of Nexus into the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, directing Chastain Gallery and Spruill, and getting back into her practice in her 60’s after the death of her husband.

As Julia says, “My life is anecdotal and serendipitous.”
