Jacina Leong 梁玉明 is an artist-curator, educator and researcher of Chinese and Italian heritage, living and working in Narrm (Melbourne).
With fourteen years experience working with children and young people, school and university students, emerging and established artists, creative and cultural producers, researchers and educators, Jacina is committed to the role that arts organisations can play in bringing people together to explore and respond to overlapping crises and precarious futures. This commitment has been shaped by professional experiences working with and across art museums and regional galleries, universities and schools, local councils, arts festivals and libraries.
Her transdisciplinary and collaborative practice has taken shape as workshops and curatorial encounters, pedagogical experiments and peformances, community events, conversations and texts, and research projects. Jacina was recently Co-Director for Bus Projects and is currently completing her PhD with a focus on post-representational curatorial practice and its ethics of care.
