Virginia Rigney is an independent curator and writer whose practice has sought to interrogate the cliché that the Gold Coast is a ‘place of no history and no culture’. Her curatorial projects have explored historical and contemporary artistic perspectives in unexpected places from real estate hoardings to surf boards, fibro shacks and beach fashion. She previously collaborated with Bleach* in 2014 to present Fibro Coast The Bleach Extension and in 2016 was a Queensland Government Smithsonian Fellow.

Creative partner of Bleach* Festival since 2011
