Cody + JulianArtist
Cody + Julian is a collaboration between New York City based artists Cody Ann Herrmann and Julian Louis Phillips. The two have been working collaboratively since 2017, when they met attending Social Practice Queens at CUNY Queens College. The artists’ practices are rooted in performance and participation, and prioritizes engagement and representation of communities vulnerable to economic and ecological displacement. Their project, The Peoples Communication Commission (PCC), will create media and installations that repurpose the tactics of advertising campaigns to empower the general public to speak to those in power. The resulting work will include guerilla advertising, interventions and design workshops based on collaborations with residents, businesses, civic organizations and commuters.
Cody + Julian have presented work as part of Open Engagement, and have individually been recipients of the Jerome Foundation Artist in Residence Fellowship at Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, and the More Art Engaging Artists Fellowship.
