Liv Wynter

Country: United Kingdom

Liv Wynter (1992) is an artist, educator, activist and writer from South London. She graduated from BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths in 2015 and has since become a notable voice within the political art scene. She is Artist in Residence at Tate Britain and Tate Modern on the Education Programme for 2017-18, and Artist Facilitator with Indigo Youth at Hackney Museum August 2017 - March 2018. She recently led a group show at David Roberts Art Foundation (May - July 17), and completed an arts council funded residency at The Royal Standard, Liverpool in 2016. She is a founding member of WHEREISANAMENDIETA and stands in solidarity with Sisters Uncut, London Anti Raids, Action for Trans Health and any other grassroots organisation fighting austerity and oppression. She is also in queer feminist punk band Militant Girlfriend.

Liv is a queer working class female artist. She uses an anarchic exploration of language, live performance, and text based practice to create unique forms of story telling. She uses these to create discussions around class, sexuality, gender, recovery from violent relationships and rebuilding yourself post trauma. Liv’s work is socially and politically demanding, holding both herself and her audience accountable. Liv’s work demonstrates a fluidity which allows her to move from established art institutions, to youth clubs, community centers, protests, all the way to museums with the same committed conviction.
