Louise Hearman – Meet the Artist
Join us for a panel discussion with Louise Hearman, Anna Davis & Fiona Gruber.
Louise Hearman is a Melbourne based artist whose suburban landscapes and bush scenes, often captured at twilight or sunset, incorporate otherworldly forms that imbue them with a supernatural quality. She was the winner of the 2016 Archibald Prize for her portrait of Barry Humphries.
Anna Davis is a Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. Since starting her role in 2009, she has curated more than 10 major solo and group exhibitions, as well as commissioning artists’ performances and site-specific projects both inside and outside the museum. Anna has a background as an artist and holds a PhD in Media Arts from the University of NSW. She speaks regularly on contemporary art and curatorial practice, and has presented exhibitions in Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
Fiona Gruber is a writer and broadcaster who writes regularly on the arts for the The Guardian, The Australian, The Age, Australian Book Review and makes arts features for Radio National. She reviews books, theatre and film for the Times Literary Supplement in the UK.
