Artist and Poet
Jazz Money is a poet and artist of Wiradjuri heritage producing works that encompass installation, digital, performance, film and print.
Working across different mediums, Jazz’s practice is centred around questions of narrative and legacy: place memory, First Nations memory, colonial memory and the stories that we tell to construct national and personal identity. Their first poetry collection, the best-selling how to make a basket (UQP, 2021) was the 2020 winner of the David Unaipon Award. In 2023 she is a resident artist at the Clothing Store at Carriageworks in Sydney.
As a cross-disciplinary artist Jazz's work has been presented in public settings and leading institutions including: HeK Basel, Switzerland; The Shed, New York; Pivô, São Paulo; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; ACMI, Melbourne; Powerhouse, Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences, Sydney; Carriageworks, Sydney; Fremantle Biennale; Hyphenated Biennale; and others.
Their writing has been widely published nationally and internationally, and performed on stages around the world, including: TEDx Sydney, the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the Sydney Opera House, Literature Live! Mumbai, Performance Space New York, PEN International, and a wide range of arts and literary festivals in every Australian state and territory.
