About the Curator:
Andrea Briggs is a Wiradjuri and Yorta Yorta curator from Narrandera, NSW. Her curatorial practice aims to highlight and support political expressions of artmaking – an approach she considers to be most effective and resonant in contextualising lived experiences. From 2009-16, Andrea coordinated the Black Screen Program at the National Film and Sound Archive, providing access to First Nation Films and touring works to regional and remote areas of Australia. In 2017, she worked for the Indigenous Unit at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in Sydney.

Andrea Briggs is currently Curator First Nations at Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA). Since 2018, she has contributed to the care, presentation and development of the MAMA Collection and the development and delivery of exhibitions, with a focus on artistic programs involving First Nation artists.
