Liz Murray is a London-based artist who works with sculpture, photography, collage, and moving image. Her work addresses the ownership and celebration of queer, resistant, and radical histories, drawing on a personal archive of feminist and press materials from the 1980’s. A former peace camp participant, Murray remains involved in different forms of social and political activism, communicated most recently in her doctoral project Performing Resistance: The Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp as Artwork. She completed her PhD studies in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art in 2022. Murray is a member of several artist-run collectives including Five Years, the Partisan Social Club, and GLAP Collective. She co-authored the Anti-Fascist Newsletter for Five Years, published in the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest in 2020.
