Associate professor in Art, Curtin University

I am an art theorist, educator, researcher and presenter, based in Perth, Australia.

I grew up in Wales and moved to Australia in 1990 to study art at the University of Sydney. I graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts Honours Class 1 in 1994, and in 2000 was awarded a PhD in Art History and Theory from the University of New South Wales.

I regularly contribute to The Conversation, as well as publish academic research. In 2015, I published 'Double War: Shaun Gladwell, visual culture and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq', Thames & Hudson.

Since 1997, I've taught art history at universities in Australia and Hong Kong, and I'm currently an Associate Professor in Art at Curtin University, Perth, Australia. I've won multiple awards for my teaching and I direct the StudioCrasher video project.
