Decomposition by Soup at CUC

A very nice exhibition by the Soup Collective at the Contemporary Urban Centre opened tonight. The members of Soup are all artists who work in various roles at Tate Liverpool so they should know a thing or two about art. Some thought-provoking works and a good selection of different media.
