James Desser is a skilled photographer and interdisciplinary artist.
James Desser approaches his work in different ways, using varying mediums and he is a skilled photographer. A playfulness is often present in Desser’s work that, though thoughtful, can often show a witty and irreverent view on a subject.
James co-curated the exhibition “Venture Arts presents…” with artist Tom Emery at the Manchester Contemporary, 2017, selecting artworks from Venture Arts along with supported studios ActionSpace, London and Project Ability, Glasgow.
In 2018 James was selected to take part in ‘Other Transmissions’, the second in Venture Arts’ ‘Conversations Series’ of collaborative residencies with emerging contemporary artists.
In 2019 he was selected for HOME’s Future 20 Collective, a group of artists aged 18-25 who undertook a 12 month training initiative with HOME in 2019-2020.
