Andy Vagg is an artist, curator, writer and educator. His practice explores the qualities and limitations of contemporary existence, and how the choices we make inherently effect, respond to, and delineate social evolution. He creates work in social contexts, to activate spaces to form literal and metaphorical platforms for the development of ideas to encourage positive social change.
Andy has created work in public and private spaces in Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, Launceston and Hobart. He has collaborated with community in colleges, high schools, primary schools, community centres, and child and family centres.
Andy completed a Master of Contemporary Arts at the School of Visual & Performing Arts, Launceston, in 2011, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Tasmanian School of Art, Hobart, in 2007. He has been a recipient of the Australia Councils AIR programs in 2010 and 2013, the Situate Arts in Festivals program in 2013, and the Contemporary Arts Tasmania Board Mentorship program in 2010. Andy has been a Committee Member of the Glenorchy Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee since 2011, and a Board Member of Kickstart Arts since 2015.
