Amanda Haskard (Australia)

Amanda Haskard is a Tatungalung & Brabralung curator living in Naarm (Melbourne).

Primarily working with moving image, sound and installation, Amanda’s curatorial work & research explores duality and experimentation, often through themes of memory, ritual and resistance. Projects are site responsive, highly collaborative and embrace a cross-disciplinary approach. Amanda is committed to working in non-traditional modes and across art-forms, and is passionate about creating a culture of interconnectedness in her curatorial work which values new ideas, experimentation and difference.

Amanda has held curatorial and leadership positions with Firstdraft, the Centre for Projection Art and SIGNAL. She was a founding member of Animatism, a collective facilitating artistic action and creative exchange with Timor-Leste. The project received several accolades including the University of Melbourne’s Vice Chancellor Engagement Award. 

Amanda is a Curator at ACMI, lectures with RMIT School of Architecture and Design, and holds a Master of Art Curatorship from the University of Melbourne.
