Lindy Lee AO


Lindy Lee AO is one of Australia’s most influential and respected contemporary artists and cultural role models. She has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary art in Australia through ongoing leadership in the cultural sector as an academic, board member, cultural advocate, educator, founder, and mentor.

Since the early 1980s, Lee has explored ideas around connection, history, family, time and personal identity through works that draw on her experiences as a second-generation Chinese Australian as well as a practicing Zen Buddhist. With a multi-disciplinary practice that incorporates installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, printmaking and public art, Lee has received widespread recognition both nationally and internationally.
