The Artist in Residency program is an opportunity for invited Australian Artists to connect with our local area & community, developing ideas and concepts that will go towards creating new work for a 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 infomed 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.
