Glasshouse Regional Gallery Presents:

Liam Benson You Already Know

You Already Know reflects the intuitive ways we collect and process our experiences, how they inform us, who we are culturally and the unspoken ways these memories are transferred and transmuted within relationships, amongst community, and between generations.

Featuring new work created through community engagement during the artist’s digital residency, You Already Know reflects the complex perspectives we embrace and the unspoken ways we share our experiences with one another.

Liam’s digital residency with the Glasshouse was in collaboration with the Mid North Coast community via online submissions from people connected to the area, including images and stories that reflect local identities and experiences.

ON VIEW: 5 February to 24 April

OPENING: 11 February at 6pm (click HERE for details)

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

About the Artist:

Liam Benson, 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.

Liam Benson is represented by Artereal Gallery - Art Gallery Sydney Australia
