Grant Stevens

Born 1980, Brisbane. Lives and works Sydney.


Grant Stevens works across various media including sculpture, drawing and photography. He is best known for his video work.

Selected group exhibitions include GOMAQ: Contemporary Art from Queensland, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (2015); Striking Contrasts, dLux Media Arts, Sydney (2014); We Used to Talk About Love, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2013); Desire Lines, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2012); National Artists’ Self-Portrait Prize, University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane (2011); and Speaking in Tongues, Nature Morte, Berlin (2009).
