Shannon Lyons is an artist currently living and working in Melbourne, whose practice focuses on unpacking the complex relationships that exist between artistic content and context. She continually adapts, draws from and responds to specifically located built environments, producing works that directly reference the site where they are made or exhibited.
Lyons was awarded a practice-led PhD in Visual Art from Curtin University in 2016 and received a Bachelor of Arts (Art) (First Class Honours) from Curtin University in 2008. In 2004 she was selected to participate in the Fondazione Antonio Ratti Advanced Course in Visual Arts with visiting Professor Jimmie Durham in Como, Italy and was a visiting scholar to the E'cole Nationale Supérieur d'Art de Dijon (ENSAD) in 2008. Recent projects include ‘Wayfind’, Next Wave x West Space, 2018; ‘Infrastructuralism’, La Trobe Art Institute, 2018; and ‘A dead mouse and a broken coffee machine’, Bus Projects, 2018.
