Dr Amy Spiers

Dr Amy Spiers is an artist, writer and researcher living on the unceded lands of the Kulin nation in so-called Melbourne. Her socially-engaged, critical art practice aims to prompt questions and debate about the gaps and silences in public discourse where difficult histories and social issues are not confronted. Spiers has presented art projects across Australia and internationally, including at Monash University Museum of Art (Melbourne), the Museum für Neue Kunst (Freiburg), MONA FOMA festival (Hobart) and the 2015 Vienna Biennale. As a writer and researcher, Amy has published texts widely, including for Public Art Dialogue, Art & the Public Sphere and Journal of Arts and Communities. She is currently a research fellow at RMIT School of Art.
