Supporting artists with intellectual disabilities through our studio and gallery, promoting their work and advocating for their inclusion in contemporary art practice.



25 March – 6 May 2023

Co-curated by Caroline Wylds (APA staff artist) and Adrian Lazzaro (APA artist).
ACKNOWLEDGE ME showcases the unstoppable abundance of the practice of Arts Project Australia artist Adrian Lazzaro. Based around Lazzaro’s epic scrapbook collection, Acknowledge Me combines the elegant punk materiality of Adrian’s work with the electric free-jazz hum of Will McConnell’s sizzling texta drawings, the eerily endearing gloopy charm of Matt Gove’s Ghostbusters ceramics, and an emergent echo upon the windows by inimitable fan artist, Katherine Botten.

Curl up in the soft area and immerse yourself in the biting social commentary of Lazzaro’s tactile scrapbooks. Expect utmost relevancy; Mr Bean, National Scissors Day, Communist Tissue Boxes, Stigmardi-gras, and much, much more.


Saturday 25 March
