About Current Residents

Liza Faktor
Ford Family Foundation Golden Spot Residency

Liza Faktor is a visual artist and independent curator. Her practice is informed by how the memories and traumas of humans and the land are intertwined; how we and landscapes process violence; and how we might heal. Her image-making is connected with her engagement with other artists and communities, and is heavily influenced by collaboration with advocates, scientists, research and travel.

Her work was exhibited in Spain, Norway, Russia, UK and the US, and is in private collections in the UK, Switzerland, Lebanon, Russia, and the US. She is the recent recipient of Oregon Regional Arts and Culture Council grant (2023) and Oregon Arts Commission Career Opportunity grant (2022). She curated over 20 exhibitions, lectured and taught workshops in Europe, the US, the UK, Brazil and Australia.
