Winner of the Turner Prize in 2008, Leckey rose to prominence in 1999 with Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, in which he appropriated pop imagery and music to create a layered and manipulated homage to UK club life from the 1970s to 1990s.
Chronicling the experience of successive generations of British youth, the eclectic assemblage includes reference to the hybrid dance culture of the hugely popular northern soul scene of the late 60s and early 70s.
Leckey, who was born in Birkenhead and went to school in Ellesmere Port, will speak about the influence growing up in Merseyside has had on his work.
The talk is off-site and will take place at Liverpool Hope University:
The Great Hall, Liverpool Hope University, Cornerstone Campus, Haigh Street, Liverpool L3 8QB.
