Lisa Waup Artist Talk

Join us for an Artist Talk with Lisa Waup, who will be in residence at Kluge-Ruhe March 8- April 7, and whose exhibition close to the wind is currently on view in the Focus Gallery.

Lisa Waup is a mixed-cultural First Nations artist and curator who was born in Narrm (Melbourne). Her multidisciplinary practice encompasses a diverse range of media, including weaving, printmaking, photography, sculpture, fashion, and digital art. With a deep connection to the symbolic power of materials, her work reflects her personal experiences, family history, Country, and broader historical narratives.

Through her practice, Waup weaves together threads of lost history, ancestral relationships, motherhood, and the passage of time, which culminates in contemporary expressions that speak to her past, present, and future. Waup holds a Master of Contemporary Art from the University Melbourne and her work is held in both public and private collections in Australia and internationally. Currently, Waup is a lecturer in the Drawing and Printmaking Department at the Victorian College of the Arts and the University of Melbourne.

close to the wind is curated by Hannah Presley and is on view until June 30, 2024.
