short bio

An active artist for over 30 years, Paula Lalala explores the way context shapes our experience of art. Her project oriented practice oscillates between a private inward journey and outward investigations which involve other artists and the wider public. She has presented her own work, which incorporates a vast range of media and public participation, internationally in galleries, museums and public spaces. Additionally, she has been curating art shows since 1992 and has facilitated exhibition of work by hundreds of artists, many of whom are internationally acclaimed and celebrated.

Her numerous projects include the Autodidact Institute, an organization that espouses the benefits of and facilitates self-directed learning; The Landscape Preservation Society, an art based collaborative project whose primary goal is raising funds to protect open spaces through the sale of nature based artworks; and The Paula Lalala MVSEVM, a life long large scale autobiographical artwork. Her most recent project involves initiating and spearheading a collective organization, The Women Artist Team, TWAT, who are working collaboratively to create multiple iterations of a monochromatic bedroom installation.
