2022 Honouree: Lawrence English
The IMA Annual Gala and Benefit Auction 2022 is held in honour of globally renowned, Brisbane-based experimental composer, artist, and curator Lawrence English.
Lawrence is a composer, artist, and curator based in Meanjin/Brisbane. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, English’s work prompts questions of field, affect, and memory. He investigates the politics of perception and creates works that ponder subtle transformations of space, asking audiences to become aware of that which exists at the fringes of recognition.
He has curated IMA’s experimental sound program MONO for over fifteen years and is the director of the imprint Room40.
