About the Artist

Miranda Hine

Miranda Hine is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based writer, curator and artist fascinated by how these disciplines intersect to construct and disrupt stories. Her paintings play with our instinct to create connections when objects, text and images are placed together and unpick what it means to curate. Miranda is a finalist in the 2022 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, a highly commended finalist in the Clayton Utz Art Award 2022 and a finalist in the Lethbridge Landscape Prize 2022. With a Bachelor of Fine Art (QCA) and a Master of Museum Studies (UQ), her primary research focus is on how artists can challenge museum narratives.

Her art practice sits parallel to her writing and curating practices. Miranda has curated exhibitions in museums, galleries and ARIs, and written for Garland Magazine, SUNNIE, and the Australasian Journal of Popular Culture, among other publications. Miranda received the UQ Art Museum’s Emerging Art Writers’ Award (2016), and Editor’s Choice in the Young Art Journalism Awards (2018) and was shortlisted for the 2022 Queensland Premier’s Young Publishers and Writers Award.
