Kate Just is an established artist who works with sculpture, installation, neon, textiles and photography to produce contemporary art works that promote feminist representations of the body and experience. Specific to Just’s practice is the use of knitting as an engaging sculptural medium and an unwitting political tool. In addition to her highly crafted solo artworks, Just often works socially and collaboratively within the community to create large scale, public projects that tackle significant social issues including sexual harassment and violence against women.
Kate Just holds a PhD in Sculpture from Monash University, a Master of Arts from RMIT University, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Victorian College of the Arts. Just’s practice led PhD in Sculpture, The Texture of Her Skin, won the Mollie Hollman Doctoral Medal in 2013. Just has been a Lecturer in Art at the Victorian College of the Arts since 2005, and in 2017 was appointed as The Head of Graduate Coursework.
Viv Miller’s paintings and drawings are characterised by an idiosyncratic use of abstract and representational approaches. Her work draws influences from a range of Western and Asian art traditions, as well as imagery from the natural world, computer graphics and cel animation. She completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours 1) at the South Australian School of Art, University of South Australia, in 2000, and completed a Master of Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne University, in 2014. Her works in painting, drawing and animation have been exhibited across Australia and overseas.
