Talk and tour: John Moores Painting Prize China winners 2018
Victoria Gallery and Museum, and Liverpool School of Art and Design
2-4 pm, Saturday 21 st July 2018
This year we celebrate both the 60th anniversary of the John Moores Painting Prize, and the 10th anniversary of the Chinese competition. John Moores Painting Prize Senior Lecturer Dr Hana Leaper will give an introduction to the history of the Prize, and of the fruitful connection between the Scouse and Shanghainese art worlds.
The five winners of the 2018 edition of the Chinese Prize will then give short introductions to their work, before we cross the road to the Liverpool School of Art and Design for a tour of an exhibition of the work they have created in Liverpool, and an opportunity to explore the Bloomberg New Contemporaries and Biennial exhibitions in the building.
The talk will take place in the Leggate Lecture Theatre at 2.00 pm and then tours of the artwork will be arranged afterwards from 3.00pm.
