Sean Lowry is a Sydney-based artist, musician and writer. Lowry holds a PhD in Visual Arts from The University of Sydney and teaches in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Newcastle, Australia. Lowry has performed, exhibited and presented extensively both nationally and internationally and his published writing appears in numerous international journals and edited volumes. His conceptually driven artistic practice employs strategies of concealed quotation designed to operate at the limits of recognition and specificity. Lowry’s practice ranges from overpainted wall painting to dematerialized conceptualism, subliminally inflected electronic music, strategies of détournement, expanded painting and experimental sound and video. His research interests include art after appropriation, aesthetics after conceptualism, artistic production after postmodernism, creative arts pedagogy, and the role of sound in visually centered cultural formations. Lowry is also the Founder and Executive Director of Project Anywhere: Art At The Outermost Limits Of Location-Specificity ( – a global exhibition model and research platform in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. From September to December 2014, Lowry will be Visiting Scholar/Artist at the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design in New York.
