Prof John Hyatt

Biography

John is an artist: painter, digital artist, video artist, photographer, designer, musician, printmaker, author and sculptor. Since 2010, Hyatt has exhibited in Australia, Brazil, China, India, Ireland, Portugal, Japan, the UK and the USA. He has a long and varied career and involvement in cultural practices, pedagogy, industry, urban regeneration, and communities.

A transdisciplinary theorist, he is a polymath with an interest in arts and sciences. Hyatt's big show of his own work in 2017, John Hyatt: ROCK ART, at HOME, Manchester, has been hailed as highly influential as has his 2009, STATE LEGACY exhibition, co-curated with Huang Zhuan of OCAT, Shenzhen, China, and shown in Manchester and China where it is recognised as being groundbreaking. Music fans know John in many incarnations and collaborations but primarily as singer/songwriter with legendary post-punk band, The Three Johns.

As a Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University, following 10 years as Head of Fine Art, Hyatt originated and developed the Research Institute, MIRIAD, and as its Director for 15 years he made it the UK’s 6th highest-rated arts research centre. In September 2016, John moved to become Professor in Contemporary Art at Liverpool John Moores University’s School of Art and Design where he currently works, appropriately, from the John Lennon Building. In October 2016, he became Research Leader for the School and Director of ART LABS, a networked set of specialist Artistic Research and Technologies Laboratories.
