Emma Buswell is a West Australian based artist, curator and designer. Emma is fascinated with systems of government, economies and culture particularly in relation to constructs of place, identity and community. Her current work is focusing on relationships between identity and place, with a motivated enquiry into the way in which kitsch and nostalgia play into our understandings of self-identification and personal histories. Using Tropes appropriated from popular culture and Australian art history, Buswell examines her own family histories intuited through conversations and the learnt craft techniques from her maternal family line.She has exhibited internationally and nationally and in 2011 was selected to attend the Advanced Course in Visual Arts in Lake Como, Italy. She has previously worked on projects including maxART, Success, Moana ARI and Polizia and co-founded Cool Change Contemporary in 2018. Emma is currently the Co-ordinator of the Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award where she also assists on host of other curatorial projects.
