Artist Talk with Lisa Waup

Ararat Gallery TAMA



Join us for an artist talk presented by Lisa Waup on Saturday 13 March at 2pm!

Lisa Waup is a multidisciplinary artist and curator working across weaving, printmaking, photography, sculpture, textiles and installation. Waup will discuss her distinctive weaving practice, which highlights the importance of tracing lost history, ancestral relationships, Country, motherhood and time.

Born in Melbourne, Victoria in 1971, Waup is an artist of Gunditjmara, Torres Strait Islander and Italian heritage with an affinity with Melanesian culture, developed through her extended family and experience of living in Papua New Guinea.

TAMA’s most recent acquisitions, a trio of baskets by Lisa Waup, are showcased in our exhibition Looking Through Time: Basketry from the TAMA Collection.
