Amanda Newall

Amanda Newall is a New Zealand artist and educator based in the UK. She was the 2022 Olivia Spencer Bower Foundation Award recipient. She has a PhD ‘Costume in Art Education and Institution’,  from the University of the Arts London. Her bespoke costumes, often only used once, act to extract ideas to activate agency.  Sculpture, intermedia, drawing, print, sound, moving image, storytelling, digital inter-actives, performance, humour and enactment feed into a practice that incorporates the built environment including automobiles and architecture as costume. Landscape, anecdote, oral storylines, B-grade sci-fi, trade and exchange and fragile economic money systems similarly inform her work.
