Hayley Millar Baker

Constructive Memory & Storytelling

Hayley Millar Baker (Gunditjmara, AU) is a cross-cultural research-driven, contemporary artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Her practice reveals a perspective that explores human experiences in a lens that is non-exclusive and non-linear, connected within memory and contemporary storytelling. Constructing complex visual insights to past, present and future realms, storytelling becomes a methodology for her in which to reclaim and reauthor constructs of history, narrating inherited and personal stories.

Furthermore, Millar Baker negates experiences of remembering/misremembering memory, while reflecting on how often personal recollections and historical accounts are improvised and embellished to become new ‘truths’.

HAYLEY MILLAR BAKER holds a Master of Fine Arts at RMIT (2017) and has been selected for the Ramsay Art Prize (2019); the John Fries Award (2019); as one of the top eight young Australian artists for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney’s Primavera (2018); The Josephine Ulrick and Win Shubert Photography Award (2018). She has won the John and Margaret Baker Fellowship for the National Photography Prize in 2020, the Darebin Art Prize in 2019, and the Special Commendation Award in The Churchie National Emerging Art Prize in 2017. 

Her work has been exhibited nationally including her first career-survey at University of Technology, Sydney (2021), PHOTO2021: International Festival of Photography (2021), TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art (2019, 2017), Yirramboi Festival (2019, 2017), the Sydney Festival (2018), HoBiennale (2017), and Ballarat International Foto Biennale (2017).
