Lesley Taker, Exhibitions Manager at FACT in Liverpool joins us for an informal conversation about how she works with artists.

About this event

Led by our Creative Director Ruth Claxton, this is the latest in a series of events designed to demystify the commissioning process and help artists understand how different curators and organisations work, and how projects and relationships with artists evolve.

This event is exclusively for STEAMHouse members

Lesley Taker is a Liverpool-based arts producer, curator and writer. She is particularly interested in the ways in which technology is changing contemporary art practice and discourse, and in artworks which deal with fluid identities, shifting truths, or unstable narratives.

She is Exhibitions Manager at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), where she works with both emerging and established international artists across major and pop-up exhibitions, large-scale events, Public Programmes and Artist Residencies. Here she has developed new work and presentations with artists such as Shona Illingworth; LaBeouf, Ronkko & Turner; Cecile B. Evans; Larry Achiampong & David Blandy; Ryoichi Kurokawa; Wu Tsang; Marianna Simnett; and Morehshin Allahyari. Her writing has appeared in several major publications affiliated with FACT, as well as local and national arts press.
