Our third invited speaker in the 2016 PSM Guest Lecture Series is Keg De Souza.

Keg de Souza is an Australian artist working with mediums such as inflatable architecture, food, film, mapping and dialogical projects to explore the politics of space.  This investigation of social and spatial environments is influenced by her formal training in architecture and experiences of radical spaces through squatting and organising. She often creates site and situation specific projects with people, with an emphasis on knowledge exchange. Keg is a member of various collaborative groups, such as SquatSpace Artist Collective, NUCA: The Network of Un-Collectable Artists, and The Rizzeria printmaking collective and has been self-publishing her own artist’s books and zines for over 15 years under the name All Thumbs Press. Recent exhibitions include: the 5th Auckland Triennial; 15th Jakarta Biennale; and Vertical Villages at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Sydney (all 2013); Temporality in Architecture, Food and Communities, Delfina Foundation, London; Temporary Spaces, Edible Places, Atlas Arts, Isle of Skye, Scotland; If There’s Something Strange In Your Neighbourhood… Ratmakan Kampung, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (all 2014); and Temporary Spaces, Edible Places: New York, AC Institute, New York (2015). Keg is currently exhibiting in the 20th Biennale of Sydney, The future is already here — its just not evenly distributed.
