About Ursula K Frederick

I am an artist and academic working on Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country (Canberra, Australia). My primary modes of art practice are photography, printmaking and video. As an archaeologist, my art practice is informed by my interests in material culture and the way people interact with each other and their worlds.

I work as a Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research at the University of Canberra (UC). My academic writing can be found via my UC research profile.

In 2017 I was awarded an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) to undertake a three-year interdisciplinary project examining the relationships between creative art practice and contemporary archaeology and heritage.

My PhD was in Art Theory and Photography and Media Arts at the Australian National University. This practice-based research explored the aesthetics of car cultures in Australia, Japan and the USA.
