Craig Walsh

b. 1966

Craig Walsh was born in Orange in 1966, lives and works in Sydney, Australia. He is primarily interested in hybrid and site-specific projects and the exploration of alternative contexts for contemporary art. He often utilises projection in response to existing environments and landscapes. He has worked across a range of art forms including theatre, architecture, public works, gallery exhibitions, natural environments and festivals.

His work has been shown in a number of national and international exhibitions, including the Gwangju Bienelle, Jakarta Biennale XIII, Indonesia; Yokohama International Triennale of Contemporary Art, Japan; 01SJ Biennal San Jose, California; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Koganecho Bazaar, Japan; and DRIFT 08, London. He is currently Adjunct Professor at Griffith University. Craig Walsh: Digital Odyssey commenced in 2010 as a national, multi-venue tour and artist residency bringing internationally respected artist Craig Walsh to rural and remote locations throughout Australia. The project enabled regional audiences the opportunity to not only view but also become involved in the production and presentation of unique and highly engaging new media artworks whilst the artist resided in each town for periods of three to seven weeks. The project formed as a collaboration between Craig Walsh and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), along with State and regional organisations and community groups. Along the tour, Craig Walsh worked with people and sites outside the traditional realms of art galleries or museums. The works created in each town have been guided and influenced by the landscapes and histories of the local area, and the project has been a catalyst for change within the communities involved.
