Bio

Juri Koll’s paintings, photographs, and films have been exhibited in galleries across the U.S. since the late 1970’s. Works from 2015 have been exhibited at the The Mike Kelley Gallery, Temporary Space, the Porch Gallery - Ojai, The Gabba Gallery, and a Kio Griffith-curated show traveling across Japan. His art video projections have been performed at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (with Xeno), the LA Coliseum for EDC, Anon Salon for Vau di Vire, Burning Man, the Xenodrome, and many other venues. After graduating from the California Institute of the Arts in 1984, in addition to his photography and painting, Koll began directing documentaries on artists and other art world figures. He traveled across the country to work with major curators in their museums and galleries, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery in Washington, D.C., LACMA, and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. As he continues to do this work, his subjects include world famous and infamous artists and curators from the Renaissance period to the present.

Recently, Juri Koll's first documentary, In The Steel: A Portrait of Mark di Suvero, (1991), was accepted into the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution.

Koll is the Founder/Director and curates exhibitions for the Venice Institute of Contemporary Art. ViCA recently produced the Fine Arts Film Festival, featuring 21 films about art and the art world in Venice at the historic Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center. ViCA and the event were honored with a Certificate of Recognition presented by Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti. ViCA sponsored and production managed the Trans Angeles exhibition curated by Peter Frank at the Wilhelm Morgner Haus Museum in Germany, which will be traveling to other museums in Europe before a return to the Riverside Art Museum in Fall 2017. ViCA’s critically acclaimed Water Works exhibition, conceived in early 2014, and presented at the Porch Gallery Ojai in Summer 2014, moved from the Loft at Liz’s to the Museum of Art and History in the Fall of 2015. ViCA co-produced Water Works II, an international juried exhibition with the Porch Gallery Ojai, which is on view at the Glendale Community College Art Gallery.

Koll is a member of the Directors Guild of America. Juri has produced and/or directed over 70 films, both fiction and documentaries. His films have screened in major festivals, including Cannes, the Cork International Film Festival, the Australian International Film Festival, and won many awards. 

His writing on the art world has been featured in the New York Times, The Huffington Post and other publications. Reviews of his curating and other work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, L.A. Weekly and other publications. Koll has taught art at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Brooks College in Long Beach, and does so regularly with the Fresco School at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
