Megan Cope

Megan Cope’s work explores notions of environment, identity, geomorphology and mapping; decolonising methodologies and toponymy are a primary aspect of her practice. She is a descendant from the Quandamooka region (North Stradbroke Island) in South East QLD. Megan has exhibited her works at the Australian Embassy in Washington DC, the Koori Heritage Trust in Melbourne, City Gallery in Wellington NZ, Cairns regional art gallery and the 2009 ARC Biennial in Brisbane. Over the years Megan has curated and directed several projects including ‘tinygold’ ('07,'08 & '09) , ‘Art with Altitude’ at Brisbane Airport Village (2012), ‘Desperate Spaces’, the Artist Handbook “So You Want To Be An Artist” (2010) and was the Creative Director of the Brisbane Artist Run Initiatives Festival (09/10). In 2011 Megan also became a member of Aboriginal collective proppaNOW.
