Shane Hulbert is an Australian artist, academic, and curator. His work has been exhibited internationally and locally in Australia, with recent Australian highlights including the National Gallery of Victoria, the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Monash Gallery of Art, and RMIT Gallery. International highlights include The Photographers’ Gallery in London and the Pingyao International Photography festival. In 2017, he curated a major photographic exhibition celebrating 130 years of photography at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. His photographic works challenge patriotism, positioning national identity as a mutually contingent relationship drawn from multiple narratives of immigration, tourism, and settlement histories. Acknowledging that mythical landscapes and places are subjective, his work seeks to mythologize an everyday landscape and apply a sense of cultural confusion to highlight the diversity of places and their relationship to cultural identity. He is currently the Associate Dean and Head of Photography at RMIT University. (Photo shot in Melbourne, Australia 2017. Photo sponsors: Walston and Beth Peters.)
