Want to be a part of the conversation that sparks the ideas and concepts for Liam’s upcoming exhibition? Join invited artist Liam Benson through a series of community engagement sessions exploring the idea of relationship to place - through a series of creative workshops and opportunities for you, the community, to get involved. "I'm interested in local community/cultural and personal story telling through body art, graffiti, local and personal iconography... A way of communicating and connecting with each other through imagery. " - Liam Benson These sessions will assist Liam in creating new work that will feature in his solo exhibition the following year. About the Artist Liam Benson is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice incorporates performance, photography, video and textiles. Benson’s work explores identity and culture as a living dualistic process which is both informed by and subverts tradition, entrenched ideologies, popular iconography, art and media. Liam’s practice is informed by working collaboratively with diverse communities through an ongoing conversation about how culture, sub-culture and identity interrelate and evolve. Liam Benson’s works are held in significant public and private collections including The MCA Australia, the Art Gallery of South Australia, Artbank and Western Sydney University.
