Juliana Bellante's work combines painting, drawing, sculpture, light and sound and uses her practice to prompt questions and create dialogue and critical discussion.
Juliana has been commissioned by ESA and Leeds City Council ('artforms' Music + Arts Initiative of Education Leeds and International Relations) to run the education programme with Allerton Grange and Benton Park high schools in response to the project ENTER THE AMAZING VIRGINIA SHOPEL (ESA's new commission by Dortmund-based artists Gudrun Kattke and Silvia Liebig.)
