KEY PROJECTS

ART ET AL., INTERNATIONAL ART PLATFORM, 2020-ongoing
ROLES: Co-Website Manager, Editor & Design (branding by mono)
WEB BUILDER PLATFORM: squarespace.com
We are an inclusive, curated international art platform that commissions and presents collaborations between artists from supported studios, artist peers and arts professionals. We elevate diverse voices and creative practices. 

In 2020, founding partners, Arts Project Australia, Slominski Projects, and Jennifer Lauren Gallery, identified a need for more inclusive programming and access in the contemporary arts for neurodivergent, intellectually, and learning disabled artists to be seen, heard, and participate. As a result, they formed Art et al. – an international platform that connects artists from supported studios with international peers, arts professionals, and audiences. Art et al.’s global collaborations and partnerships result in commissioned critical writing, exhibitions, and original multi-media content.  Art et al. has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council of the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Aesop Foundation, Arts Project Australia, Slominski Projects, and Jennifer Lauren Gallery.

PERSONAL ART JEWELLERY WEBSITE, 2016-ongoing

ROLES: Website Manager, Editor & Design

WEB BUILDER PLATFORM: wix.com

 

My work is tinged with nostalgia and melancholy: it delves into nuances of the everyday and results in reflections that are conceptually engaging and beautiful. Through my work, I challenge self-imposed paradigms by physically recording and recreating her daily experiences and environment, allowing time to reflect on aspects of the human condition. I wanted my website to reflect this and clearly communicate what I do, as a maker and as an arts professional more broadly. This is the website I built using a template that I adapted to my needs.

INTERNATIONAL OUTSIDER ART CONFERENCE2014

ROLES: Volunteer Website Manager & Design (style guide created by monoprint), Volunteer Social Media Manager

REPRESENTED: Approx. 40 artists

PROJECT MANAGED BY: Arts Project Australia in partnership with The University of Melbourne
NATURE OF THE EVENT: Promote an international outsider art conference

WEB BUILDER PLATFORM: wix.com

 

Arts Project Australia partnered with The University of Melbourne, to present an international conference held at The University of Melbourne 
23 – 26 October 2014, titled Contemporary Outsider Art: The Global Context.

 

Forty years after the term ‘Outsider art’ was coined by Roger Cardinal to encompass works by untrained artists who work outside the established art world, new paradigms and definitions are being sought. The current enthusiasm for these forms of expression culminated in Massimiliano Gioni’s 2013 Venice Biennale, which dedicated several exhibits to self-taught or Outsider artists. Reviewing the Biennale in Art and America, Travis Jeppesen wrote ‘the success of Gioni’s bold production signals a move beyond ‘the contemporary’ as the default category we have relied upon for far too long’. Such comments demonstrate the timeliness of this topic and the potential for this conference to contribute to and enrich our understanding of contemporary culture at the broadest level.

 

The increased interest in Outsider art, however, raised a number of significant questions in response to which Contemporary Outsider Art: The Global Context proposed an inter-disciplinary exploration of the field, drawing on the experience and knowledge of Australian and international artists, collectors, curators and scholars. The conference comprised keynote addresses, sessions of 30-minute papers and round-table discussions where presenters from different disciplines and backgrounds will engage with the topics relating to the three major themes of the conference:

 

> The Practices of Outsider Artists

> Collections of Outsider Art and Curated Exhibitions

> Outsider Art History and Theory
