Craig Judd‘Imagine...no Biennales - reflections on the Biennale of Sydney 2014’

Juliana Engberg has crafted a touchy-freely, cute and lushly romantic mega exhibition to less than thunderous critical and public acclaim. In his Arts Forum presentation Craig will present a review of the 2014 Sydney Biennale - You Imagine What You Desire.

Craig Judd is curator of Detached, a privately funded, not-for-profit visual arts organisation in Hobart. He has been senior curator at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and Director/CEO of Wollongong City Gallery, and has lectured art history and theory at the ANU, the VCA, UNSW and Sydney University.

Craig is highly regarded as a commentator on contemporary art and related cultural issues, is the author of " Still Life: Stuart Black" (2013) a dissident Melbourne Pop artist, and has recently published feature articles and reviews on the work of Dani Marti, Roger Ballen and Anne Ferran.

Craig is a well known public speaker, with recent lectures including "Archaeology and the tropes of Modernity", "A Taste for Scandal: Art in Regency England" and "Glamour, Dust and Mud: USA in the 1930's".

In 2014 Craig was the Consultant Curator for "Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum of Kabul" at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

From 1999 - 2005 Craig was the Education and Public Program's manager for the Biennale of Sydney.
