Works in United States of America

Victoria Lawon's practice is based on the premise that it is possible to question the culture, narratives and production of tourism through performances, interventions, photomedia and video works. Awareness of the growing influence of tourism on globalisation has given rise to her critique of this field as a social site.

Lawson has curated and participated in numerous solo, group and collaborative exhibitions and interventions including, during 2008, THISISCURATING1 - 40…for Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney and Dream Merchant for the Blacktown Arts Centre; in 2007 she exhibited in the solo exhibition Walking to Work, Series III, Brunswick Street for QCP, Brisbane; in 2006: +Plus Factors at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art; Our Investment at the Queensland Centre for Photography and contributed to a mail art project for Artetica and Unicef in Rome and Cesena, Italy. In 2005 she exhibited in Phatspace Ate at Phatspace in Sydney; Killing Time at the Soapbox Gallery in Brisbane; and The Placard Project at Mori Gallery, Sydney. In 2004 she curated and exhibited in the fictional Schiaffo d’Anagni Travelling Arts Scholarship exhibition at the First Draft Gallery, as well as exhibiting at the Gallery Wren in Sydney. Her upcoming exhibitions include I’ve never been to the Great Barrier Reef…at OBRAS art foundation and Artist’s Residence in Evoramente, Portugal. She has recently completed a six months Artist's Residency at St Andrew’s Cathedral School, Sydney and is a PhD. candidate in sculpture, performance and installation at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney.
