A B O U T   M E

I am an art theorist, educator, researcher and critic based at Curtin University, Australia. 

 

I am the Lead Investigator on the 'Art in Conflict' project, a three-year ARC linkage project in partnership with the Australian War Memorial and the National Trust (NSW), with a team of researchers from University of Melbourne, University of NSW and University of Manchester. 

 

Since 1997, I have taught art history at universities in Australia and Hong Kong and I am currently Associate Professor in Art at the School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry, Curtin University, Australia. 

 

I have won multiple awards for teaching, publish frequently in peer-reviewed and popular press (ArtforumArt & AustraliaThe Conversation). In 2015, I published the book, Double War: Shaun Gladwell, visual culture and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (Thames & Hudson Australia).

I grew up in Wales, moved to Australia in 1990, and graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours Class 1) in 1994. I was awarded a PhD in Art History and Theory from the University of New South Wales in 2000, with a doctoral thesis examining the role of affect in political conflicts surrounding contemporary art in the 1990s.
