Rhythm of Protest :: Lawrence English
2 Mar – 7 Apr 2019
Gallery 1

Official Opening: 6pm Friday 1 March 2019

Rhythm of Protest is a major solo exhibition of new work by Brisbane-based artist Lawrence English exploring themes of the shifting role sound plays in protest and public assembly. Specifically, it asks how sound has the ability to expose, remap and reframe the lived experience of protest. The exhibition considers voice, as one of the primary tools of protest, tracing its history across the 20th Century from the slogans of call and response chanting, to the human microphone of the Occupy movement and also the increasing use of non-lethal acoustic devices by those opposing protest. The works also acknowledge the Northern Rivers as an important site of historic and continued protest, and will sit alongside an exhibition of documentation of the 1979 Terania Creek rainforest protest.

English is an internationally regarded artist, composer and curator, whose work is broadly concerned with the politics of perception, the nature of listening and sounds’ capability to occupy the body.
