Lecturer, Art History & Theory and Sculpture
Sasha Grbich is a practicing artist and educator who coordinates our Bachelor of Visual Art and Bachelor of Visual Art (Hons) programs. She recently spent time living and studying in Portugal having received the 2018 Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Art Scholarship.
Sasha is a mid-career artist, writer and lecturer who works responsively with places and communities. An avid collector of things, found footage, sounds and stories; she is fascinated by the way art takes part in the politics of everyday life. Sasha approaches artworks as ecologies: unfinished events that perform with audience and in local environments.
Sasha is a regular contributor to Artlink Magazine, amongst other critical review publications. In 2015 she completed postgraduate research at University of South Australia examining the operation of art making practice as a series of ‘Performative Encounters’.
Sasha was commissioned with graduate Kelly Reynolds to create the collaborative community project and installation Urban Sun Project for ACE Open as part of the exhibition Plenty. She was awarded the 2018 Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship and through 2019 she was a guest at Maumaus Art School Portugal, undertaking their independent study program.
Sasha has recently been involved in numerous exhibitions and residencies both locally and internationally. She has shown work at MOD Adelaide, the National Art School in Sydney, and has spent time as artist in residence at Phasmid Studios in Berlin and HANGAR in Lisbon.
