Our full exhibition programme is now closed, but visitors can still enjoy groundbreaking art in person at FACT and Bluecoat until August & September.
Artists gathered in this venue employed different viewpoints and organisms to question, disrupt and explore what a human can be against a ‘neutral’ and universal designation. Through their practice, some of the artists explore ways in which our bodies are fluid, porous and interdependent – be it natural or artificial. Others confront historical corporeal constructions by amplifying experiences of those who have other bodies often located in a space of lack, in a place of disadvantage and subordination. But all call for an urgent need to re-think what a human is – dismantling structures that inflict violence upon those whose humanity is valued differently because of their race, gender, sexuality, or abilities.
The Liverpool Biennial exhibition at Lush Liverpool closed on Sunday 27 June.
