Julian Montague (b. 1973) is a Buffalo-based artist, graphic designer, and photographer. Since the late 1990s, Montague has been making art with a multidisciplinary approach and an undercurrent of existential humor. His work takes many different forms, from multi-year conceptual investigations, to making ephemera for a fictional 1970s art institution, to hard-edged abstract paintings. Montague’s work is largely concerned with exploring and reframing the systems of order that we have come to rely on to make sense of the natural and human-made worlds. The tools and visual language of graphic design play a large role in his artwork, his two practices often influence one another.
His work has received attention from Bloomberg Citylab, Dwell, Frieze, It’s Nice That, and many others. In 2021 The New York Times recommended his Instagram account as one of the top art accounts to follow. Montague has work in the collections of the Buffalo AKG Art Museum, Martin Z. Margulies, the Norton Museum of Art, Progressive Insurance, and numerous private collections. His mid-career retrospective exhibition “Julian Montague: Projects” at the Burchfield Penney Art Center closes on October 29. His book The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification, Revised Edition will be published by the University of Chicago Press in October.
