Please come to this short presentation of a recent conceptual art project I had the pleasure of creating with the very talented Karel Baracs storyteller to join two different communities of makers -those from a center for people with physical limitations and art classes of local middle school children- through exploring life's experiences via their senses and the medium of clay.


Opening Solo Exhibition at Zuiderzee Museum

You are invited to the private opening of my first Museum exhibition in The Netherlands...!
Since moving to Amsterdam from New York a few years ago, I have been developing a body of work about my emotional experience immigrating to this country and tracing my roots here. I am very excited that one of the places where I conducted my research, the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen, invited me not only to develop my work into sculptures but also to exhibit the results. 

I hope you will be able to come and celebrate the culmination of this phase of the project and the acquisition of the Zuiderzee Museum of several of my works. I feel very honoured to have my work join their collection, which combines traditional arts and crafts alongside contemporary art and design inspired by it. There will be limited space at the Opening, so please RSVP by clicking the link below

Sunday 21 August from 14:00-17:00
Acquisition Exhibition: Julia Mandle "An Immigration" (on now through 6 November 2016)
Zuiderzee Museum (inside/binnen museum)

Review by Suzanne Volmer, Artscope Magazine

"Of Water & Bone: Mother/Daughter Mandle in Newport" 

July/August 2016



"...The artists' aesthetics have gravitational pull toward process charged with cultural awareness and investigatory layering of content worth contemplating, especially in an election year. Gayle explores global issues of water sustainability and Julia examines the topic of immigration..."



Review Washington Post

Posted:June 13, 2016 by Julia

From recent review by Mark Jenkins "Washington Post" on June 10, 2016:

"The centerpiece of the Greater Reston Arts Center show is “Study for a Monument,” which arrays 88 charred and battered chairs on one side of a wooden teeter-totter. Inspired by the Arab Spring and the Occupy protests, the assemblage resembles a cresting wave.

That imagery is even more apparent in “Rising Tide,” an embroidered silhouette in which chairs surge higher, unconstrained by the gallery’s ceiling. But other works show burning thrones or plummeting chairs, invoking destruction and defeat."

Julia Mandle receives Mondriaan support for upcoming Residency

Topics: New(s)
Posted:November 4, 2015 by Julia

I am very grateful to soon begin a residency supported by the Mondriaan Fonds at the renowned European Ceramic Work Centre where I will continue to develop my body of work called "An Immigration," which is about making tangible my own experience of moving to The Netherlands and attending a required language and assimilation course. This new body of work is also about migrating from one material to another: from sail cloth to ceramic. This residency follows my intensive research period, which was based in part at the Tilburg Textile Lab and the Zuiderzee Museum, where I was able to study the 17th century art of sailmaking. For more information, see previous blog.

The production of Dirty Cookies 2014 is made possible in part by the generosity of Olivia Douglas & David DiDomenico, Marie Nugent-Head, and Goldman Sachs. The project has been created through the invaluable input and support from Jonathan Matthew Russell-Anelli, Murray McBride from The Department of Crop and Soil Sciences at Cornell University and their program Healthy Soils/Healthy Communities. Support for citywide soil collecting and testing came through the involvement of the AP Environmental Science Students and teachers Julie Mankiewicz and Edward Wren at The Bronx High School of Science. The project would not have been realized without the support from Nathan Elbogen and The Old American Can Factory, Sarah Louise Lilley, and Tricia Martin. The additional ‘dirt’ meditation program was made possible through the involvement of Puntsokla and the access provided by Bill Dillworth and The Earth Room, Dia Center for the Arts.

Review NY Gallerist

In this week's Gallerist NY reviewer Zoe Lescaze writes, "Chelsea galleries are better known for serving the super rich than taking them to task, but if any 1-percent patrons happened upon Leila Heller Gallery  last Tuesday night, they were in for a surprise. A panel discussion devoted to economic inequality brought Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and Thomson Reuters Digital Editor Chrystia Freeland to the gallery to speak alongside Roger Mandle, executive director of the Qatar Museums Authority, and artist Gayle Mandle."

Prikkelend Slow


I was invited to speak as a featured artist on an interesting  panel about 'slow fashion' to students from various design academies from the Amsterdam region. The discussion was lively and posed difficult questions about whether fashion is necessary at a time of over-consumption of our natural resources.
