Aslaug Magdalena Juliussen (b. 1953 in Lødingen) is a Sámi artist from Norway. Throughout her career Juliussen has had a strong focus on materials, primarily textile, and thread, but also materials such as steel, glass, leather, hair, antlers, and bones. Materials from her everyday life often appear in her artworks, and through stitching, cutting, dissection and gluing she seeks new perspectives and interpretations to understand the materials she is working on.

Juliussen graduated from the Oslo National Academy of Arts in 1982. After her studies she spent two years as an assistant of the Norwegian textile artist Synnøve Anker Aurdal. Juliussen is represented in a number of collections including the Norwegian National Museum, the Norwegian Arts Council, Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum and the county councils of Troms, Nord-Trøndelag and Finnmark.
