Liquid Architecture 13: Antarctic Convergence has been conceived by the curators as a way of investigating the philosophical, social and environmental ramifications of the growing human presence in Antarctica through the activities of a diverse set of artists who have produced works from first hand encounters of the continent. Specially curated by Lawrence English and Philip Samartzis, this program draws on a range of Australian and international artists who have undertaken fieldwork in various locations throughout Antarctica. Celebrating the 13th annual festival presented by Liquid Architecture, this national program comprises a Performance Concert Program of live performance works in surround sound, an Exhibition program of spatial-temporal works, Artist Talks and Workshops and is presented in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Bendigo in June and July 2012.
