Associate Professor, RMIT University

Shane Hulbert is an artist and academic, based in Melbourne, Australia. He is currently Deputy Head of School in the School of Art at RMIT University, where he lectures in photography. He writes on contemporary art and art education, and has exhibited internationally, including The Photographer’s Gallery in London, and the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia.

Shane’s art practice celebrates the diversity inherent in Australian culture, with particular emphasis on understanding the impact of multiple narratives of immigration, settlement and tourism on Australian culture. Borrowing from the traditions of landscape, documentary and political photography, and composed with an Australian “larrikin” sense of humour, his imagery features a combination of local and international places, personalities, icons and myths.

Recent publications include Lumens Festival: Curating the Ancient City (Australian Scholarly Publishing, 2013) and “Envisioning the future: Working towards Sustainability in Fine Art Education” (in International Journal of Art & Design Education [iJADE], 2016).

Hulbert has a PhD from RMIT University.
