Keg de Souza is an Australian artist working with mediums such as inflatable architecture, food, film, mapping and dialogical projects to explore the politics of space.  This investigation of social and spatial environments is influenced by her formal training in architecture and experiences of radical spaces through squatting and organising. She often creates site and situation specific projects with people, with an emphasis on knowledge exchange. Keg is a member of various collaborative groups, such as SquatSpace Artist Collective, NUCA: The Network of Un-Collectable Artists, and The Rizzeria printmaking collective and has been self-publishing her own artist’s books and zines for over 15 years under the name All Thumbs Press.

Our second invited speaker in the 2016 PSM Guest Lecture Series is Cherine Fahd.

Cherine Fahd (1974) is a Sydney based artist and academic. Employing photography in playful explorations of the body and concealment, her photographic work draws on photography’s connections to performance, sculpture and painting. She completed a PhD at Monash University, Melbourne in 2015 and her doctoral research titled Hiding from the Camera for the Camera examined the paradox of both appearing for the camera whilst being hidden.

Her work is represented in significant public collections and she has been the recipient of numerous grants,  awards and residencies such as the NSW Women & Arts Fellowship from Arts NSW (2005), Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Foundation for the Arts Photography Award (2004), National Photography Prize (2010) and the Moya Dyring Studio from the Art Gallery of New South Wales (2003).
