Internationally respected visual artist Craig Walsh creates interventionist and site-specific projects. His work has spanned a range of art forms including digital media, installation, sculpture, architecture and theatre, manifesting in public works presented in gallery exhibitions, natural environments and festivals. These projects often explore how environmental and cultural conditions influence the human condition. Currently exhibiting with Hiromi Tango at the 2013 Setouchi Triennale in Japan, he works regularly in the Asia Pacific Region and over the last fifteen years has interrogated a number of alternative contexts for contemporary art.

Craig’s work has been curated into a number of prestigious national and international projects and exhibitions including the Setouchi International Art Festival, Japan; the Gwangju Biennale, South Korea; Yokohama International Triennale of Contemporary Art, Japan; 01SJ Biennal San Jose, California; HEADS UP, Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia; The Anne Landa Award, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia; Fuji rock, Japan; WOMAD, United Kingdom and Nuit Blanche, Canada. Craig Walsh’s magnum opus, Craig Walsh, Digital Odyssey, A museum of Contemporary art touring project (2010-11), comprised a national, multi-venue tour and artist residency across regional Australia, which enabled regional communities to both view and become involved in the production and presentation of unique and highly engaging new media artworks. The works within this project were guided and influenced by the landscapes and histories of the local area. Craigwals Projects   Digital Odyssey
