Pip Lyons is a practicing Interior Designer and writer who is concerned by social politics in the context of physical environments.
Pip has self published critical essays on politics and architecture. Her first pamphlet Architical was exhibited globally as part of the Archizines Tour from 2012-2015.

West Space is a contemporary art space that provides an experimental and responsive platform for the development, exhibition and contextualisation of artists’ work. We are distinct in being a non-for-profit organisation that blends the creative freedom and risk-taking of an artist-run space with the professional infrastructure of a contemporary art institution.
Brunswick Street Gallery provides a professional exhibition space to self-representing local and national artists, as well as creative studio spaces for makers and designers.
Located in the heart of Fitzroy—one of Melbourne’s most creative suburbs—we oversee a dynamic schedule hosting regular exhibition openings, numerous cultural events and art prizes throughout the year.
