Marian Tubbs is a Sydney based artist. A recurring theme in her work is how materiality intersects with notions of value, pleasure and reality. She has exhibited recently at Artspace, Sydney, Minerva, Sydney, Rooster Gallery, New York, Temp Space, New York, UNESCO, Paris and with the Maldives Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale, Italy. Upcoming exhibitions include "Primavera 2014: Young Australian Artists" at the MCA, "Layers Thaw" at Minerva, Sydney and the "2014: NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (emerging)" at Artspace. She currently teaches in Photography and Situated Media at the University of Technology, Sydney, and is completing a PhD focussed on how poor materiality gleaned from the street and internet can poetically critique cultural ascriptions of value at the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales.
