Ipswich Art Gallery, d'Arcy Doyle Place Ipswich

The Space Between Us is a major mid-career survey of the past two decades of Lincoln Austin’s practice.

Through artworks of varied scale, from delicate miniature assemblages to expansive installations, the artist’s work playfully captivates the viewer in an immersive experience of colour, design and whimsy.

The exhibition draws together works from public institutions and private collections and has been curated by Samantha Littley in collaboration with the artist.

An illustrated catalogue will accompany the show, available from The Gallery Shop.

No Bookings Required for General Admission.

All visitors are required to provide contact tracing information via a digital QR code check-in on arrival as part of the Gallery’s CovidSafe plan.
