We offer our respect to Elders both past and present of the Kulin Nation and extend this offer to all Australian First Nations people

Jake Treacy

Jake Treacy is a curator, writer and poet whose practice employs numinous acts through exhibition-making, performativity, and the spoken and written word. They acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded upon the Kulin Nations land from which they work, and pay their respects to Elders past, present and future across all First Nations. They are a University of Melbourne graduate with a Master of Art Curatorship (2017) and Postgraduate Art History (2013) who has previously co-directed an artist-run initiative, sat on grant advisory panels, and written published copy on numerous contemporary arts practices. Their recent thesis examines ways of constructing liminal experiences in order to incur healing, promoting inclusivity and community, and exercising the therapy of art. Their recent projects include Pearlescent Verse (Human Rights Arts and Film Festival), Apocalyptic Horse (Heide Museum), Utopian Tongues (Seventh Gallery), and Beyond the Veil (Blindside Gallery).
