Kevin Murray – Curator and Writer

What we make of our world


‘Culture is not only a heritage, it is a project.’ Paul Hountondji

Welcome to the website for Kevin Murray, an independent writer and curator. Please find here information about prospective, current and previous projects. They reflect where I come from, Australia, what’s special about this end of the world and what we make of it. Please note those projects on the right of this screen that are currently in development. I am pleased to discuss these with potential partners.
