Emma White

Born 1976, Canberra. Lives and works Sydney.


Emma White creates exquisitely crafted replicas of everyday objects that reflect the material world back to the viewer. Through creating and photographing this ubiquitous material, making them into non-functioning objects, she highlights how we categorise, value and use objects both in art and in daily life.

White’s solo exhibitions include While You Wait, Locksmith Project Space, Sydney (2010); Study, BREENSPACE, Sydney; Blank Media, MOP Projects, Sydney (both 2010); Rise and Fall, Firstdraft, Sydney; The Artist Bus, Melbourne (both 2008); Instructions for a still life (snowclone), Canberra Contemporary Art Space; Tautology, MOP Projects, Sydney (both 2007)

Her group exhibitions include; Swedish for Argument, UTS Gallery, Sydney (2012); Volume One: MCA Collection, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney (2012); Primavera 2010: Exhibition by young Australian artists, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2010); Helen Lempriere Traveling Art Scholarship (finalist), Artspace, Sydney (2008) as well as exhibitions in London, Dublin, Berlin and Paris.

In 2008 she received a Master of Visual Art by Research and in 2003 a Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours, both from the Sydney College of the Arts, where she was awarded the University Medal.

Emma White has works in the collections of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Artbank, Sydney; National Library of Australia, Canberra and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney.
