Andy Butler is an artist, writer and curator. He makes performances, paintings, installations and videos that reflect on the ways we navigate inherited structures of power, with an especially keen interest in the dynamics of white saviourism in the West and its links to legacies of colonialism. He has exhibited work at Bus Projects, Firstdraft, The Substation and Footscray Community Arts Centre. In 2019 he undertook an Asialink residency to Manila, Philippines. Recent independent curatorial projects include Always there and all a part (2017) through BLINDSIDE’s inaugural Emerging Curator Mentorship, and Those Monuments Don’t Know Us (2019) at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
