New performance by Liv Wynter


This new live art performance piece sees artist and activist Liv Wynter exploring the fury and rage that stems from mis-gendering, the policing of bodies, and the assumption that trans and queer safety can only be an option if we go through the blistering labour of explaining ourselves constantly to others. The work will feature music from The Specials alongside new material by Liv.

Liv Wynter has become a notable voice in the political art scene and was Artist in Residence at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, until they resigned in protest of the invisible inequalities of the institution. Liv was recently in residence at Wysing Arts Centre, and performs in punk band Militant Girlfriend.

This is a Free Word commission for All The Ways We Could Grow.
