Drop-in and Play Session with artist Liam Benson

Thu 7 July at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Make a drawing, share a story, dance, stretch, relax and play in this free drop in session with the artist.
Families are invited to this special school holiday drop-in session with artist Liam Benson in his interactive installation hello, good to meet you.
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times and families are welcome to arrive and leave as they like.
Informed by the complex and multisensorial ways that horses interact, feel and connect, Liam Benson’s installation offers a space where audiences can experiment together with non-verbal communication, dance and sensorial play.
Hello, good to meet you was originally commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) for the Jackson Bella Room – a dedicated space within the MCA where diverse audiences can engage with contemporary art through sensory experience.
Liam Benson: hello, good to meet you continues until 24 July 2022 and is open from 10am -4pm throughout the school holidays.
