The Artist in Residency program supports the development of new work and connects contemporary artists with our community.

Glasshouse Regional Gallery Presents:

Our Digital Artist in Residence

What is a Digital Residency?

Our 2021 invited Artist in Residence, Liam Benson (based in Sydney), was unable to attend his scheduled residency back in August of this year. However, we are excited to be able to do things a little differently!

This digital residency is an opportunity for Liam to engage with our community remotely. In this community callout, Liam will gather information that will contribute to an artwork to be featured in his 2022 solo exhibition at Glasshouse Regional Gallery.

We Want YOU!

If you're from the Mid-North Coast and have a tattoo that you LOVE talking about, you should participate in this project! You can provide details and upload a photo of your tattoo with the form at the bottom of the page. In doing so, you will be providing information that will contribute to Liam's 2022 solo exhibition.

Submissions close 30 November 2021.

About the Artist:

Liam Benson is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working on Dharug Country, Western Sydney. Incorporating performance, photography, video and textiles, Benson’s work explores identity and culture as a living dualistic process, both informed by and influencing the spectrum of collective consciousness through exchange.

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. Liam Benson is represented by Artereal Gallery, Sydney.
