She has made more than twenty-five films and digital artworks since 1986 which have been exhibited at numerous international events including the New York Film Festival, the Hong Kong International Film Festival, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The Centre George Pompidou (Paris), and Redcat (Los Angeles). Her work has been featured in two editions of the Whitney Biennial and is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Murray has had numerous solo screenings at venues around the world including Media City Film Festival, Pacific Film Archives, the San Francisco Cinematheque and Cinematheque Ontario (Toronto).
“Using combinations of found and original footage, Julie Murray makes subtle and eloquent films that imbue banal images and everyday sounds with an other-worldly charge, a sense of mystery and menace. Murray’s increasingly sophisticated cutting style connects images using visual rhymes based on rhythm, gesture and morphology, until each person, animal or object becomes the dream or nightmare of another in a web of associations without beginning or end.” — Chris Gehman, Cinematheque Ontario
