Liv Wynter @ The Royal Standard, Jul 4 – 10

4 July 2016

Liv Wynter is taking over The Royal Standard in Liverpool, running July 4 to 10.

The week will bring a series of talks, events, workshops and performances arranged and facilitated by the artist at the gallery and brought together under the title How Much Art They Paying You?

The residency is directed explicitly and specifically towards other artists and the wider community who are working class, queer, who identify as female, non-binary and PoC, and who are frustrated at the “lack of funding for radical art practice”, among other things that Wynter notes as a form of “direct retaliation” in the capitalised press release.

All performers will be paid and all workshops are free.

Of specific note is the artist talk Wynter will be giving on July 5 where she will be discussing her personal practice as well as her involvement with the recent campaign, movement and activist group, WHEREISANAMENDIETA, who have recently protested in London over the exclusion of women of colour within art history.

See The Royal Standard website for more details.**

Running up that Building… @ Scena Productions, Jan 24

21 January 2015

Scena Productions is hosting a new Art Licks exhibition titled Running up that Building and Diving into the Pool, openinh January 24.

The group show, which brings a whole slew of artists – including Amalie Jakobsen (also functioning as curator with Oliver Hickmet), Kyungmin Sophia SonOskar Jakobsen, Daniel Szor and Alexander Glass , along with about 16 others – takes the location as the starting point.

Situated inside a soon-to-be swanky building, already demolished and built up again, the exhibition press release hints to a certain impermeability within the evolving world: “Years from now, it will still be here, as it looks now, when we see it from above on Google Maps, or look in the front gates on Street View.”

Accompanying the exhibition’s opening is a series of performances by three contributing artists: Joseph Buckley‘s at 19:45, Jack Jubb‘s at 20:45 and Liv Wynter‘s at 21:30.

See the Art Licks events page for details. **
