EXHIBITION OPENING Liam Benson: Virtue Without Stain & HOME 2022

Fri 4 November at 6:00 pm

Bathurst Regional Art Gallery is delighted to present Liam Benson: Virtue Without Stain, an exhibition presenting a collection of works, including performances and community engagement developed works, by Western Sydney based artist Liam Benson and exploring the intersections of cultural, gender and queer identity.

The exhibition, curated by Richard Perram OAM, surveys Benson’s embroidered, photographic, new media and performance work. Importantly, Virtue Without Stain includes new collaborative works made with local communities to provide a context for the complexity of Benson’s work that both celebrates and discusses contemporary cultural experiences, stories and values.

HOME 2022 features artwork created by local primary school students who participated in the Home program. The artworks were created during a workshop led by Wiradjuri artist Ronda Sharpe. The Home Program connects schools to local Aboriginal artists, community, language and culture.

Liam Benson: Virtue Without Stain and HOME 2022 will be opened by the Director of Parramatta Artists’ Studios and Manager of Cultural Services at City of Parramatta Sophia Kouyoumdjian.

Entry to this exhibition opening is $12 non-members / $8 BRAGS members / $5 students (must show a student card).
