Join curator Joanna Sulkowski and artists Teelah George and Susan Roux for a talk and tour exploring HERE&NOW19: Material Culture, an exhibition that highlights the practice of artists working with fibre and textiles to express ideas relating to current socio-political issues.



Teelah George’s practice encompasses painting, sculpture, drawing and installation. Based on her research into written and photographic archives, George's work examines the relationship between narrative and representation.

Born in South Africa and now based in Western Australia, Susan Roux works with paper, drawing and sculpture to address her inherited history and the cultural legacies of colonialism.

Joanna Sulkowski is an emerging artist and curator with a range of experiences within the Perth arts industry. A founding co-director of the artist-run initiative Paper Mountain, Sulkowski has also organised a number of independent group and solo exhibitions.

HERE&NOW19: Material Culture

31 August — 7 December 2019

Curated by Joanna Sulkowski, HERE&NOW19 features new work by Western Australian contemporary artists Ómra Caoimhe, Teelah George, Susan Roux, Holly Story and Marzena Topka.

The exhibition challenges the perception of craft as a repetitive activity of making things by hand and offers a new perspective on the processes and materials-driven practice of a dynamic group of contemporary artists.

An annual exhibition presented by Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, the HERE&NOW series showcases some of the most innovative and exciting work by Western Australian artists.
