Los Angeles-based artist Sharon Lockhart will have her first solo presentation in the UK at FACT as part of Liverpool Biennial's curated exhibition by Anthony Huberman and Mai Abu ElDahab.

Lockhart’s extensive body of work includes projects that involve years of in-depth research and collaboration with communities that result in the creation of both films and photographs. Her visual representations focus on everyday, intimate situations while reflecting broader global conditions through their historically grounded approach.

On Tuesday 4 February, Lockhart will give a free talk in Liverpool as part of Liverpool Biennial's on-going programme of talks.
