Carol McGregor

Carol McGregor is an Aboriginal artist based in Brisbane of Wadawurrung (Kulin Nation) and Scottish descent. She works across multi-media disciplines with materials including ephemeral natural fibres, metal, and paper. Her recent art practice revives the traditional possum skin cloak as an art form and a way to strengthen community and individual identities.

With her practice Carol has worked extensively with Indigenous and non-indigenous communities across South-east Queensland, taking working workshops, passing on knowledges and skills and creating new artworks. Carol has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada, Kluge Ruhe Aboriginal Gallery, USA, the Commonwealth Games 2018 and the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. She is currently the Program leader of the Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art unit at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
