Rhythm of Protest :: Lawrence English
2 Mar – 11 Apr 2019
Gallery 1

Official Opening: 5.30pm (for 6pm talk) Friday 1 March 2019 

Join the artist in conversation with Art Historian Zoë De Luca as they discuss this exhibition and English's research into the shifting role sound plays in protest and public assembly.

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 situations of protest and public assembly. Specifically, it is concerned with how sound has the ability to expose, refocus and reframe the lived experience of protest. Rhythm of Protest considers the criticality of voice, the pulse of collective dynamics and forms of acoustic gesturing. It also explores ideas of latent sound that exist within the various media used to document protest and the increasing use of non-lethal acoustic devices deployed to control public assembly.

This project also extends into the Lismore Quadrangle, with a sound-based work occupying the space.

Rhythm of Protest  also acknowledges the Northern Rivers as an important site of historic and continued protest, which is also being observed in the exhibition The Terania Creek Protest, currently showing in Gallery 2.

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' capacity to occupy the body.
