Katherine Dionysius completed a Bachelor of Creative Industries (Visual Arts) with Honours at QUT in 2010, with a focus on curatorial studies. Her Honours research examined the contemporary art experience, by investigating shared curatorial strategies of art museums and alternative exhibition spaces. Katherine has worked at QUT Art Museum since 2009, and currently holds the position of Collection and Exhibitions Officer.
Michelle Knowles is a Brisbane based, emerging contemporary artist. Her practice explores notions such as the uncanny, the fetishisation of objects, performance and ritual, the otherworldly and imaginary spaces. Michelle has a BFA (Visual Arts) with Honours from the Queensland University of Technology. Her work has been exhibited in Brisbane galleries such as The Block, Metro Arts , Gallery Artisan and QUT Art Museum, and in artist run spaces such as Accidentally Annie Street Space, Level and inbetweenspaces.
Amy-Clare McCarthy completed her Bachelor of Creative Industries Honours in Visual Art in 2010. Her honours thesis was an analysis of different modes of participation in contemporary art. In 2011-2012 Amy-Clare undertook internships at MoMA PS1 and e-flux, New York. Amy-Clare currently works at the State Library of Queensland as an Exhibitions Officer. She has previously completed curatorial internships at the Queensland Art Gallery and QUT’s Creative Industries Precinct, and has also worked in the Public Programs department at the Queensland Art Gallery.
Richard Stride is an emerging visual artist, living and working in Brisbane. He completed Bachelor of Fine Art (Visual Art) with Honours at QUT in 2010, and works primarily in drawing and object-based formats. His practice is driven by a curiosity of the built environment and the tensions evident within it. It particularly seeks to question the contemporary role of geometry in regard to the human experience of simplicity and complexity, and order and disorder. Richard has exhibited in Brisbane galleries including Metro Arts, Ryan Renshaw and Brisbane Institute of Art, and created temporary installations at events such as National Youth Week and the Woodford Folk Festival.
