Kate McMillan

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Kate McMillan’s works incorporates film, sound, photography, sculpture, textiles and performance, to examine the persistence of difficult and forgotten histories in the present. Both her art practice and academic research engages with the residue of the past, with a specific focus on the colonial histories of Australia. She has written on the methodologies of creative resistance in the global south, and in feminist practices. Kate also works as an advocate, advisor and writer alongside her practice.
