Her work has been exhibited at Contemporary Art Tasmania, Standard Practice New York, Apiary Studios London, CCP Melbourne, Ve.Sch Vienna, TMAG Hobart, DARK MOFO Hobart, QVMAG Launceston and PICA Perth. She has undertaken studio residencies through Asialink (Kyoto), Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris), Bm:ukk in Residencie (Vienna), Big Fag Press (Sydney) and Contemporary Art Tasmania.
Hindmarsh as the recipient of the inaugural PhotoAccess Double Exposure residency program, which will commence in March 2016. The Double Exposure residency, which is produced in partnership with Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres, and funded by the ACT Government’s 2016 Arts Residencies ACT Program, offers one mid-career artist living outside the ACT the opportunity to make and exhibit new work in Canberra in 2016.
The Double Exposure Residency exists to support experimental photomedia practice. It aims to introduce one artist to ACT audiences, and to contribute to public awareness of photomedia practice in a national and expanded art context
