I am a Chilean-Australian theorist and historian of contemporary art and visual culture. My research and writing praxis are committed to developing counter-histories/memories/archives and institutions in alignment with decolonial aesthesis and border subjects. I am particularly invested in methodologies drawn from decolonial and Marxist-feminist theories as well as the practice and discourse of institutional critique.
I am currently undertaking three inter-related research projects:
Astrid Lorange is a writer, editor, and artist. She studied writing and cultural studies at the University of Technology, Sydney, where she completed her doctoral thesis on Gertrude Stein and contemporary poetics.

Associate Professor Felicity Fenner is a renowned curator of contemporary art, having curated over 40 exhibitions of Australian and international art since the late 1990s. Her research focuses on aspects of place and curatorial place-making, encapsulated in exhibitions such as City Dialogue: Public art interventions + the Biennale of Sydney at Customs House Sydney in 2020. She is the author of Running the City: Why Public Art Matters (NewSouth, 2017) and is currently writing a book examining biennales as agents of change.
