Marianne Huhn will be our artist in residence from mid March to early June. Marianne studied at RMIT University and completed her PhD in 2017. She has lectured and taught Ceramics and Drawing at Universities and schools throughout Australia.
Marianne has held several solo shows in Australia and exhibited in more than 30 group exhibitions in Australia, America, and Hong Kong.
She has been acquired by the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney and several Regional Galleries in Australia.
Marianne has made functional ceramics that explore and play with architectural themes and text on the surfaces. Since her PhD titled Politics and Porcelain she has developed a visual language that comments and records Australian politics. Marianne aims to recreate a space for our personal lives, through the shapes we use, to engage with the political events and machinations of the world around us.
