John Byrne

John Byrne is currently a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) and Co-Director of Static. He is also LJMU's coordinator for The Uses of Art project and is currently developing research for LJMU's School of Art and Design around the area of art, use and use value. Central to this research is an ongoing evaluation of the kind of work, or labour, that the work of art has become (or is becoming) in a globalised and networked society. Over the last two decades Byrne has published widely on issues surrounding the relationships between art, popular culture and technology.
