Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
Our program stages encounters and creates spaces for sonic experience, and critical reflection on sonority and systems of sonic affect. To do this, we host experiences at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental music, supporting artists to produce performances and concerts, exhibitions, talks, reading groups, workshops and recordings in art spaces, music venues and other sites.
Liquid Architecture is curatorially driven and our methodology embraces research, collaborations and imaginations. We want to echo beyond local conversations, problems, debates and questions, to reverberate across media and disciplines, and so to sound out new discourses about the audible world, and beyond.
We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first sovereign owners of this unceded country. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and becoming.

DATA ACCESS AND FURTHER INFORMATION
Nathan Gray: smile and nod
WORK WITH ME HERE is a new project that extends the Works<30s series – a body of short videos lasting less than thirty seconds by artist-musician-performer Nathan Gray. The project presents the complete collection of films in the Works<30s series for the first time in one space, whilst transforming Design Hub’s Project Room 1 into an open studio where new works in the series are generated collaboratively, on site and in public. Designed by Melbourne-based studio SIBLING, this space comprises a collection of ‘zones’ where visitors can drop-in, participate, watch a performance, observe works-in-progress or hang out.
During the exhibition Gray will be in residence, working and administering an intense program of public, talk-show-style conversations, actions, lectures and performances, as well as a special program of events curated in collaboration with Liquid Architecture.
