Guest Biography

Sam Harrison is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based artist and curator with cultural connections to the Kamilaroi and Wiradjuri peoples. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) from the Victorian College of the Arts, Naarm/Melbourne. His practice revolves around discussion and analysis of Australian identity. His practice is focused on utilising historical and contemporary learning resources to re-conceptualise how we interpret the national story; creating a conversation in the present, about the present, to identify what we are as a collective, yet diverse cultural entity; and envisioning what an increasingly connected, mobile, and global future has in store for us.
