Anna Madeleine Raupach is an artist working in drawing, experimental animation, augmented reality (AR) and interactive installation. She completed her PhD in media arts at UNSW Art and Design in 2014, and graduated with honours in Photography & Media Arts from ANU School of Art & Design in 2007. Her practice explores time and mapping, with a current focus on reimagining abstract notions of temporality relevant to climate change.

She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Bandung and Montreal, and had her work selected for group exhibitions and festivals including Siteworks Festival, Bundanon Trust, Countour 556, Canberra, SafARI 2016, Sydney, the Not Fair Art Fair, Art+Climate=Change, and Exploration 17 at Flinders Lane Gallery, Melbourne. 

In 2019 Anna undertook a research fellowship at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney. She was awarded an Art Gallery of New South Wales’ Moya Dyring Memorial Studio scholarship for a studio residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris in 2018, and in 2017 she was the recipient of an Asialink Arts grant to undertake a residency at Common Room Network Foundation in Bandung, Indonesia. In 2016 Anna received a project funding grant from Arts ACT to be a visiting artist at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, and was awarded a Vice Chancellor’s College Artist Fellowship at ANU.

Her work has been shortlisted for national and international prizes including the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, the Aesthetica Art Prize, the Banyule Works on Paper Award, the Footscray Art Prize, the Churchie National Emerging Art Prize, the Chippendale New World Art Prize, the Alice Prize, and in 2011 was awarded the Qantas Foundation Art Award.
