Opening Night: Human Becomings, Friday 10 March, 6pm
Human Becomings | Lex Randolph runs 11-26 March.

Artist talk, 1-2pm:
Join Lex Randolph as he engages in an artist talk about his exhibition, Human Becomings.

Artist workshop 2-4pm:
As humans, we are always re-imagining and re-defining who we are, becoming something new or different. Human Becomings exemplifies the constant change of human identity, and challenges how physical bodies contribute to our sense of self.

Join artist Lex Randolph to investigate the impacts of gender and body on identity; examine the artefacts in Human Becomings, discuss what you find, and create a detailed scientific diagram and/or soft sculpture that represents specific aspects of your own bodily gender identity.

About the Artist

Lex has been creating things and thinking critically about the world since he can remember, and now works across a range of artistic fields. He is currently producing abstract textile pieces, quirky watercolour and ink illustrations, and random sound bites that could be called music.

Human Becomings builds on Lex’s previous work, exhibitions, research and studio-based residency at Paper Mountain in 2016, exploring the impacts of gender and body on identity. While Lex’s work is somewhat autobiographical - focusing on their personal journey of gender transition and search for identities that fit - Lex is also fascinated by the way that others think about their own identity, particularly in terms of body and gender. This exhibition is designed for visitors to engage in that dialogue, to be questioned, challenged, and to encourage exploration of aspects of self that are too often thought of as static, or simply taken for granted.
