Sarah Rice is an art-theory lecturer, writer and visual artist who teaches practice-led research in craft and design at the School of Art, ANU. Her most recent course explores the idea of ‘making concepts’ and asks what questions motivate the making process.
She maintains an active participation in ekphrasis – or art forms responding to other art forms – in particular, poetry responding to visual art and design. Her work in this area has led to recent workshops convened in collaboration with Bendigo Art Gallery, CraftACT and Canberra Museum and Gallery.
Rice graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the Australian National University (ANU) and received a PhD in Philosophy from the University of New South Wales in 2003. As a poet, she is widely published and won the 2014 Ron Pretty, and Bruce Dawe poetry prizes; co-won the 2013 Winning Ventures, and 2011 Gwen Harwood, and was shortlisted in the Tom Howard, New Millennium, Fish, Montreal and other poetry prizes.
