Verge Gallery, Sydney
8 August – 23 September
Don’t miss Liam O'Brien’s work featured as part of In Character at Verge Gallery, University of Sydney. Curated by Peter Johnson and Verge Director Tesha Malott, the exhibition brings together Australian and international artists who use character and personae as a way to critically explore identity and social relations. Grounded in performance and portraiture, In Character poses questions about authenticity, sovereignty, personal histories, gender and cultural identity. By taking on or creating a variety of alternative identities, artists are able to explore heightened versions of themselves and the world around them—revealing truths about power, selfhood and the forces that bind us together.
