Liverpool Biennial 5th July – 26th October
Running until 26th October, an array of free exhibitions, screenings and talks take over the former capital of culture.
Since it was first established in 1999, and running every two years, the Liverpool Biennial highlights the wealth of culture in the North West of England. A must visit for contemporary art mixed with the unique Scouse heritage.
We recommend catching the Bloomberg New Contemporaries, a selection of over forty five of the most promising art school graduates. With the Chapman brothers and Damien Hirst as previous Bloomberg exhibitors, spot the freshest talent first. You can also peruse Mondrian and his studios, now homed throughout the Biennial in the Tate gallery, Albert Dock and the Open eye, our favourite independent gallery - a must-visit.
With a whirlwind of talks and events spanning the biennial, you must not miss the RIBA architecture tours of The Old Blind School, Talk Tuesdays with each entrant of the John Moores Painting Prize and attend Drinks With, a packed programme of lectures and screenings with key cultural figures, held in the old lecture theatre at the Liverpool Medical Institution.
Whilst you’re running from event to exhibition keep your eyes open for special commissions throughout the city, such as Carlos Cruz-Diez’s optical crosswalk.
