During 2020, FACT Together created a platform for 10 artists based in the North of England to present work online in response to the financial uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and the temporary closure of galleries and museums across the world.
The event is free and held FACT Liverpool, until 29 August, 12noon-10pm.
Each of the artists selected created a new work within the theme of The Living Planet, the focus of FACT’s programme for 2020.
This programme explores the ways in which wildlife, plantlife and other ecological systems have responded to the impacts of our actions and how we need to approach the natural world, and those who live in it, from a different perspective.
FACT Together artists received a grant, plus 3 months of professional development and support from the team at FACT to create artworks from home.
Many of these artists had not previously created digital work, and the resulting projects include a podcast, games, short films, social media takeovers, interactive artworks, poetic interventions into digital diaries, workshops and more.
In this exhibition, they present a series of images, taken from each of the artworks, as well as a hidden Augmented Reality (AR) layer that can be activated during your visit.
