Bridie Gillman

Lives and works in Brisbane, Australia.

Bridie Gillman is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is informed by ideas of place, and the ways in which experiences and memories shape our perspective of a site.

Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally, including Museum of Brisbane, Brisbane; Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Sydney; The Walls, Gold Coast; Blindside, Melbourne and Run Amok, George Town, Malaysia.
