About Catherine Bell (she/her)

Associate Professor Catherine Bell is a multi-disciplinary artist, curator and academic teaching visual art in the Faculty of Education and Arts, Australian Catholic University. Her art practice explores the role of the artist in the archive and health care setting, art on the margins, socially-engaged and relational approaches to art making, feminist and care ethics in collaborative practice and challenging taboos surrounding death and dying. Since, 2009 Catherine Bell and Arts Project Australia artist Cathy Staughton have collaborated on numerous creative projects including two shared artist residencies. Bell’s recent artist residencies in the oncology ward at St Vincent’s Hospital and Caritas Christi Hospice in Melbourne involved implementing communal creativity with patients and staff to promote healthy discussion and meaningful reflection on death. She has curated exhibitions at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance, Linden Centre of Contemporary Art, Blindside and Margret Lawrence Gallery. Bell has been awarded a 2020-22 Gertrude Contemporary studio and is represented by Sutton Gallery.
