Nina Ross is a Melbourne based artist working predominantly with video, performance and photography. Her research led practice draws on individual experiences to interrogate the use of visual and textual language within political and personal spheres. Using the body, her work speaks to current global issues, while giving a voice to personal narratives and concerns. Beyond her personal work, Nina engages in various collaborative practices including co-founding Artists’ Committee (2017) and Artists’ Subcommittee (2018). 

In 2013 Nina received a Master of Fine Art (Research) with first class honours from Monash University in Melbourne, supervised by Peta Clancy. Nina’s thesis received the Vice-Chancellor’s Commendation for Master’s Thesis Excellence Award. Previous to this Nina obtained a BA (Fine Art Photography) Honours in 2006 and a BA (Media Arts) in 2004 from RMIT University.

Nina has lectured sessionally in photography, art theory, conceptual development and professional practice at various universities including Photography Studies College and RMIT University (School of Media and Communication) in Melbourne.

Since 2014 Nina has worked with a group of Melbourne based artists called Art/Parents. Together they explore the experiences of artists who are also parents.
