Simone Hine

Simone Hine is an artist, curator and writer. Her artworks expand across performance, video, installation and sound. She re-contextualises media images, with a particular focus on the cinematic. These media images are expanded spatially and temporally in order to re-examine otherwise transitory moments.

Hine is a founding co-director of Kuiper Projects (Brisbane) a contemporary art gallery and project space (2017-present). She was also a founding co-director of Screen Space (Melbourne, 2010-2016), a not-for-profit gallery, and Beam Contemporary (Melbourne, 2010-2014), a commercial gallery. Hine holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Melbourne, School of Culture and Communication.
