Lucy Beattie Hughes is an Art Curator and Artist. She has a proven track record of professional project management and curatorial direction across complex exhibition productions and international art fair presentations. Always looking to generate original design concepts, Hughes continually challenges herself and the viewer to look at art and design with fresh eyes. She holds a Masters of Fine Arts from The University of Auckland and a Bachelor of Design from Massey University, Wellington. Recent career highlights include the creation of a permanent gallery space for The Royal Children’s Hospital and the curation of the 2022/23 exhibition program at Manningham Art Gallery. Hughes' creative practice engages with the intersections of photography, form, material, abstraction and space. Experimenting with printing photographic imagery of natural environments onto silks and wallpaper, Hughes incorporates these prints into site specific artworks. Her current research interests explore the purpose of art in today's society, its social impact and the role art can play for our health and wellbeing in lived environments. Her work has been exhibited in galleries across New Zealand and Australia and is held in private collections.

Born in Wellington, 1986 | Currently lives and works in Naarm/Melbourne.
