Liam Benson is a practicing performance artist. He applies this foundation to a variety of mediums, primarily video and photography, not only as a means to document and present performance work, but also to experiment with interdisciplinary techniques. His work explores the slippery slope of contemporary masculinity and has a parallel interest in broader social concerns such as cultural environment, popular culture, media andlanguage, and how they influence and inform the conventions of gender roles.

Liam Benson is a Sydney based artist and has exhibited at MOP Projects, Kings ARI, Linden Centre for Contemporary arts, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre, Liverpool Regional Museum, Blacktown Arts Centre as well as international touring shows Designfesta: Through a Strangers Eyes, Tokyo and Gang Festival 05-06, Indonesia (both 2005). Benson has also curated shows at Depot Gallery and is one half of the performance collaboration The Motel Sisters with Naomi Oliver.
