is a Trawlwoolway (Tasmanian Aboriginal) artist, writer and a curator of Indigenous Cultures at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Her Briggs-Johnson family have lived in the Latrobe region of North West Tasmania since the 1840s, with Tebrikunna in far north eastern Lutruwita (Tasmania) their Traditional Country. Gough’s art practice often involves uncovering and re-presenting conflicting and subsumed histories, many referring to her family's experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Gough holds a PhD from the University of Tasmania (Visual Arts, 2001), an MA from (Visual Arts) University of London, Goldsmiths College (1998), and Bachelor degrees in Visual Arts (Curtin University), Prehistory and English literature (University of West Australia). In 2018, a monograph on her art: Fugitive History, was published by UWA Press, and her short fictionella: Shale, was produced by A Published Event. Gough’s artwork is held in most Australian state and national gallery collections.
