About the facilitator 

Ellis Hutch has extensive experience working for organisations such as the National Gallery of Australia, Craft ACT, Art Monthly Australia and the Canberra Institute of TAFE; and since 2004 has lectured in the Foundation Studies, Sculpture and Art Theory Workshops at the ANU School of Art & Design. She currently lectures in Sculpture and Spatial Practice at the ANU part-time and works as a practicing artist making work that spans drawing, animation, mixed-media installation, performance and sound. Ellis holds a Masters degree in Sculpture and a PhD in Photography and Media art from the ANU.

Ellis is an experienced teacher and loves working with people of all ages and backgrounds. She is especially passionate about sharing her knowledge gained working in galleries with artists to demystify exhibition practice, helping them develop professional skills and introducing early career practitioners to the support networks available to them. She has delivered professional development workshops for artists through the National Gallery of Australia, ANU, Canberra Contemporary Art Space and Photoaccess; and convened the Professional Practices course for second and third year university students at the ANU School of Art and Design from 2009 to 2019.

Over the course of her career Ellis has exhibited widely and undertaken international residencies in Thailand and Finland; and on a cruise ship across the North Sea. In 2014 she was commissioned to create the ephemeral installation Last light for the exhibition All that fall at the National Portrait Gallery of Australia. In 2016 she collaborated with US-based artist Jessica Brooke Anderson on a project inspired by the unique environment of the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary in the Flinders Ranges. Their resulting work produced as artists in residence at Megalo Print Studio in Canberra was exhibited in Dreams and Terrors at Canberra Contemporary Art Space and Articulations of the Unknown at the ANU School of Art and Design Gallery. In 2017 she was an invited artist in the Mungo project, travelling to Lake Mungo with a group of artists and students and exhibiting the resulting work in the Mungo prints exhibition at the Mildura Print Triennial in 2018.
