Lisa Radford is an artist who writes and teaches. In late 2016 she presented Dear Masato, all at once (get a life, the only thing that cuts across the species is death) across the entire gallery at West Space as part of their annual commission series, which invests in a local artist to create a new body of work. In conjunction with the exhibition, West Space and Surpllus also launched Aesthetic nonsense makes commonsense, thanks X, a book presenting a collection of her writings. Other recent exhibitions have included Painting. More Painting at ACCA, 2016; Approx. Geez Louise, Sutton Projects, Melbourne, 2015, and The 3rd Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, Russia, as part of Footnotes – a collaborative project with Liang Luscombe and 3-Ply publishing (Fayen d’Evie). Between 1999 and 2010 she was a participant in the collaborative art group DAMP.
