Kate Liston

Newcastle & Gateshead

I have produced artist commissions since 2010, spanning installation, writing and moving image. I am interested in the ways humans relate to and understand their environments.

In research terms this means I explore cognitive processing, tacit knowledge production and sensory learning within the more-than-human world. In practical terms, it means I respond to the ideas and materials which are to hand and often work site-responsively.


Kate’s notable projects include: Town Hall Meeting of the Air, BALTIC39, Newcastle, a collaborative exhibition with Tess Denman-Cleaver (2021), her solo exhibition Feel After the New See at Hatton Gallery (2018) and contributions to group exhibitions and projects Oh-Link Zone, Black Tower Projects, London (2018); The Scientific Method at The Tetley Gallery, Leeds (2016); Feminism and the Body in Performance at MART Gallery, Dublin (2015). She is an Assistant Professor in Fine Art at Northumbria University.
