2023 Contemporary Art & Design

...giving voice to our changing cultural landscape...

Contemporary art speaks to our experiences of today.

In 2023, the Adelaide Perry Gallery is proud to present Sydney artist, Lee Bethel's exhibition: A Way with Words

Lee is interested in the materiality of paper; how it can be manipulated to create an endless array of forms. She cuts, punctures, folds and arranges paper to achieve intricate patterning, structure and shadows.

Lee’s works in A Way with Words use song lyrics, speeches, quotes and names, and the relationship between object, place and memory, to examine women, feminism and the domestic environment.

You are invited to the exhibition opening event with the artist from 7.00 pm on Thursday 12 October. 

A Way with Words was commissioned by Hazelhurst Arts Centre as part of Quintet, 10 September – 13 November 2022.

A Way with Words continues 8.30 am – 4.00 pm weekdays until 25 October.

I commend the College for providing a gallery space where students can engage directly with contemporary art and artists.

Simon Chan, Director of Art Atrium Gallery, Sydney
