‘Down’ by Nicola Dale and Ailis Ni Riain
15 September – 23 October 2010
Opening on the 180th Anniversary of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, inside the buildings of the oldest existing passenger railway station still in use, this exhibition will celebrate the first journey taken between two cities through a series of large-scale works which reflect on time, routine, repetition, direction and discipline; qualities that all inform the artistic process. Featuring artists: Gareth Brew, Nicola Dale and composer Ailis Ni Riain, Phil Lockhart, Tom Palin, and Richard Proffitt
A reflection of the beat and rhythm of train traffic and influenced by the idea that the rail industry’s timetabling created a need for a uniform measure of time throughout the UK, the work will show how the journey itself can be a source for artistic inspiration.
Part of the Liverpool Biennial Independents strand.
Free. Open Tues- Fri 2-6pm, Sat 12-4pm
