For the last year, artist Jack Tan has been the artist-in-residence on our Board of Trustees examining questions of trust, accounting and accountability. He attended board meetings and away days as an invited artist, responding to the processes of governance as an artistic medium - as sculptural material that could be moulded and shaped through dialogue and exchange.

Performing Boardness is the culmination of this residency which will include a brief discussion followed by a performance that you are invited to take part in. The event will take place on Tuesday 13 September between 19:00 - 21:00. Artist Jack Tan and FACT Liverpool CEO, Nicola Triscott will open the evening with a discussion on the development of the residency and the hopes and objectives of the performance.

You will then be invited to join a series of conversations, facilitated by one of FACT’s board members and a member of our team, and rotate to a different roundtable every 30 minutes.

To take part in this unique performance, please reserve your place on Eventbrite. Spaces are limited, so we encourage you to book early to guarantee your seat.

If you wish to attend, but would rather observe and listen to conversations, there is also an opportunity to join as a spectator. Please choose the ‘Spectator’ option on the Eventbrite link above. Note that Performing Boardness will be documented and shared across FACT’s digital channels.

This residency is supported by Artsformation, a European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

About Jack Tan

Jack makes work that explores the connection between the social, the legal and art. Using social relations and cultural norms as material, he creates performances, performatives, sculpture, video and participatory projects that highlight the rules — customs, rituals, habits and theories — that guide human behaviour.
