Join Liverpool Biennial Fellow Rosa Johan Uddoh for this artist talk, as part of Liverpool John Moores University's Luminary Lecture Series.

Uddoh is an artist who explores radical self-love and black feminism, working through relationships with places, objects or characters in British popular culture. The artist works across performance, ceramics, fan-fiction, sound, video and participatory workshops, rooting stories in specific locations and materials.

She is the first artist to receive the Liverpool Biennial Fellowship founded by Liverpool John Moores University. Celebrating 20 years of the Biennial, the year-long Fellowship has been created to recognise and support the work of emerging artists.

Rosa Johan Uddoh (b. 1993, London) studied for her BA Architecture at Cambridge University and MA Fine Art Media at Slade School of Fine Art graduating in 2018. She is currently exhibiting at Black Tower Projects and New Contemporaries in London, and Embassy gallery in Edinburgh. Her work has been included in group shows at Wysing Art Centre, Cambridge, The Royal Standard, Liverpool and The Cob Gallery, London. While at Slade, she organised the interdisciplinary conference Widening the Gaze. Since 2016, Rosa has been a Sarabande: Lee Alexander McQueen scholar and presented a solo exhibition at Sarabande Foundation earlier in 2018. Her work is included in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018 at Liverpool John Moores University as part of Liverpool Biennial 2018 and will tour to the South London Gallery in December 2018.
