Adi Lerer is an independent curator and a practice-based PhD researcher at Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths University of London. Her thesis focuses on the civic role of public funded art institutions in the UK and is informed by her curatorial practice on the Home from Home programme at Tate Liverpool for people seeking asylum and those with refugee status, since 2019. The programme asks: What is the role of an art institution to a social challenge in the city? It involves experimentation in methods of engagement between the institution and the local. Artworks displayed in the gallery space are the catalyst from which the programme members research personal positions on aesthetics, identity and social perspectives, sharing their research with staff and gallery visitors. Adi holds an MA in Exhibition Studies from Liverpool John Moores University and in the past worked in arts administration roles at National Gallery (London) and British Council.
