Artwork centered around the idea of our shared past, to make art that challenges the viewer and the generally accepted discourse of local history.
Jess Hart's practice is influenced by her Indigenous History and Knowledge major and interest in colonial settlement. Her artwork is centered around the idea of our shared past, to make art that challenges the viewer and the generally accepted discourse of local history. Her aim is to create a series of works that blur the line between museum and art.

Jess Hart is the University of WA’s recipient of the Artsource Industry Award 2016, an award offered to the most industry-ready graduates from the art faculties of Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, North Metropolitan (TAFE) and the University of WA.
