13 June – 15 September
This summer at FACT Liverpool, a selection of provocative international artists tackle some of the most pressing, controversial and literally ground-breaking political issues of today.
Exploring aspects of environment, architecture, capitalism and augmented reality, Turning FACT Inside Out is an exhibition that will take over the entire building and beyond, including recreating an indoor fracking site complete with earth tremors and flames.
As FACT celebrates the first decade of its building as one of the UK’s primary centres for new media art, it has commissioned an artists’ take over, featuring bold, new or never before seen in the UK works from emerging and established artists, including HeHe, Nina Edge, Katarzyna Krakowiak, Steve Lambert, Manifest.AR, and Uncoded Collective.
Offering an opportunity to explore and debate the role and possibilities for the cultural institution and arts venue in a post-digital age, Turning FACT Inside Out is set to continue FACT’s tradition of staging risky and exciting immersive installations such as Kurt Hentschläger’s ZEE (2011) and Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson’s indoor fireworks (At 25 Metres, 2007).
