Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art

Date: 3 Aug 2021

Now in its seventh year, Liveworks 2021 returns to its home at Carriageworks with an evolved interactive digital program which debuted to acclaim in 2020.

This year, Liveworks will serve as a source of connection, renewal and hope at a critical moment in local and global history, expanding on its discoveries from 2020 to offer new kinds of artistic experience across digital and physical realms.

Foregrounding extraordinary, curious, resilient and urgent artistic voices from across our region as we all reckon with the continuing instability of our current moment, Liveworks begins to envision what’s next: amidst all of the flux and upheaval, what opportunities do we have to reconnect with each other, rediscover pleasure and create more equitable and sustainable social structures?

The program for Liveworks 2021 includes artist-led conversations, a glimpse into the future of experimental art in the making and the presentation of captivating, bold new work from the Asia-Pacific.

Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art 2021 will emerge in three program streams to enliven digital screens and invigorate physical spaces at Carriageworks:

LIVE FUTURES: A brand-new series of artist-led conversations about the future.

LIVE DREAMS: A dynamic platform for works-in-progress, exploring the art of tomorrow.

LIVE NOW: A program of new experimental art, expanding our perspective on what’s possible.

Tickets for the Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art 2021 go on sale from September 2 via the Performance Space website with further program details to be announced.
