Liam Benson

Liam Benson was born in Sydney in 1980. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Western Sydney in 2002.

Benson is a contemporary performance artist who documents and exhibits his work through photography and video.  Benson’s work deconstructs social perceptions of gender, race, cultural and sub-cultural identity by cross-referencing popular culture, art and media language. 

Benson has exhibited his video and photography at various galleries and institutions including: MOP Projects (Sydney), Kings ARI (Melbourne), The University of Queensland Art Museum  (Brisbane), Lock Up Gallery (Newcastle), Hazelhurst Regional Gallery (Hazelhurst) and Blacktown Arts Centre (Blacktown).
