Research areas

Liquid Architecture Sydney will bring together leading contemporary practitioners working to explore acts of speaking, listening and sounding. Language as a system (social, textual, material), may be disrupted, re-read, re-heard and potentially re-thought, is the central interest for many of these investigations. The artists ‘sound’ questions — philosophical, political, aesthetic — about music and experiment; about art and the art market; legacy and friendship; and the conditions under which these are made possible. In addition to this, we will be periodically imploding a set of oil drums in the COFA courtyard.  

This sound festival, is in its 15th year, is running in different cities – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Singapore featuring work across a range of disciplines. The 15th Liquid Architecture also celebrates a new partnership with UNSW Art & Design and NIEA, a collaboration led by Dr Caleb Kelly.

The program in Sydney also features a lecture by Professor Douglas Kahn (NIEA), a leading authority on Sound Art and a reading performance with Dr Astrid Lorange (NIEA).

Other key partners include the National Gallery of Victoria, Institute of Modern Art Brisbane, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Gertrude Contemporary, West Space, ABC Radio National and Federation Square.
