Neil Emmerson is a Senior Lecturer and coordinates the Print Studio. Neil has a Master in Visual Arts from the Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney. His research expertise spans a broad range of Print-related technologies, Identity Politics, Queer Theory, and Gay and Lesbian History. According to Kirsty Grant (Curator, Prints and Drawings, National Gallery of Victoria), his subject matter is political, both in terms of the critical focus it directs towards aspects of contemporary social and cultural life, and through its consistent projection of gay experience into the public realm (excerpt from Contemporary Australian Printmaking). He has been selected for numerous print related survey exhibitions at major public galleries in Australia and New Zealand since the 1990s and his work is held in the collections of major public institutions like the Auckland Art Gallery, Australian National Gallery in Canberra, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. In 2006 he was awarded the Fremantle Print Award. He has been an artist in residence with Cork Printmakers in Ireland in 2013, and at RMIT University in Melbourne in 2016.
