Dr Tammy Wong Hulbert is an artist, curator and academic based in Melbourne, Australia. Born in Sydney to Cantonese Chinese parents, from a young age she developed a passion for the arts. Her art practice has a particular interest in the complicated, multi-layered and often fragmented space between cultures, making the seemingly invisible visible. Her art making is influenced by her families intergenerational migratory connection to Australia since 1900, being between cultural spaces. In the years 2000-2, she lived and worked in Beijing, China, working with the notorious Chinese contemporary art community. This experience had a profound impact on her own outlook towards contemporary art practices encouraging an interest in art practices that are more open ended and expressive of social concerns. Her recent works have often involved a socially engaged practice working with various urban communities, in particular addressing issues of migration, belonging and the role of art in encouraging an inclusive city.
