Grant Stevens is a lecturer in Visual Arts. He teaches a wide range of areas, with particular focus on moving image theory and practice, as well as core academic and research skills. Stevens is also a practicing artist who uses video, sculpture, photography, drawing and installation to explore the verbal and non-verbal ‘languages’ of popular screen culture. His artworks have been exhibited widely, including at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (Melbourne) as well as in New Zealand, Italy, the UK, the USA, Singapore and China. Stevens’ PhD, completed at QUT in 2007, examined theories and practices of editing in art, film and writing. His ongoing research continues to examine the relationships between contemporary art, technology and popular visual culture. His artwork is represented by Gallery Barry Keldoulis, Sydney.
Grant currently coordinates units including Digital Media, Visual Arts Foundation and Honours Graduate Seminar. He also teaches in Approaches to Honours Enquiry.
Grant is currently a board member of Metro Arts, an important and long-running multi-arts organisation. He has previously served as a board member for the Institute of Modern Art (IMA), Brisbane, as well as co-directed the artist-run gallery, The Farm, and magazine, Local Art (both 2002-2004).
