Lauren Carroll Harris

Writer

Lauren Carroll Harris is a writer, researcher and artist writing and talking about cinema and art for Guardian Australia, Kill Your Darlings, ABC Radio, ABC TV and The Monthly online among others.

Having graduated from College of Fine Arts and worked in various artist-run galleries, she loves live performance, video art and experimental work from Australia and the Asia Pacific region, talking to artists, curators and filmmakers, and being part of Sydney’s contemporary art and film worlds.

Working at RealTime as Acting Assistant Editor in 2017 and curating that platform’s online gallery of new video works has convinced her that video artists are creating some of the most exciting material in Australian screen culture today. She holds a PhD in Australian cinema and film distribution from UNSW and wrote Not at a Cinema Near You: Australia’s Film Distribution Problem (Platform Papers, 2013).
