James Newitt

Born 1981, Hobart. Lives and works in Hobart and Lisbon.


James’ work explores specific social and cultural relations, embracing mutability and paradox. His videos and installations investigate spaces between individual and collective identity, memory and history, fact and fiction through personal, observational and performative approaches. He works on projects that often involve extended periods of research into specific social, cultural and environmental situations and the development of ongoing relationships with individuals and communities.

Newitt has exhibited nationally and internationally. Selected solo exhibitions include Uma Espécie de Sombra/A Sort of Shadow, Lumiar Cité, Lisbon (2013); To Catch a Tiger, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart (2011); If They Fall, Rosalux, Berlin (2010); Urgent Care, Criterion Gallery, Hobart (2009); Stories of Celebration and Dissent, Rosalux, Berlin (2009); and I Notice These Little Things, How They Change, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (2008).

Selected group shows include 24 Frames per Second, Carriageworks Sydney (2015); Tell Me My Truth, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art; The Space Between Us: Anne Landa Award for Video and New Media Arts, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2013); Sonic Spheres, TarraWarra Biennial, TarraWarra Museum of Art, Healesville, Victoria (2012); Iteration: Again, Hobart, Tasmania (2011); In The Balance: Art for a Changing World, MCA, Sydney (2010); What I Think About When I Think About Dancing, Campbelltown Arts Centre, NSW (2009); Handle with Care: 2008 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Ten Days on the Island, Hobart (2007); Eternal Beautiful Now, Sherman Galleries, Sydney (2007); and the Next Wave Festival, Melbourne (2006).

Newitt’s work is held in numerous collections, including Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart; Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart; Artbank, Sydney; Andrew Cameron family collection; and private collections.
