‘Eyes, Lies & Stories’
In an arena familiar with the grab of the grand aesthetic, ‘Eyes, Lies and Stories’ focuses on the playing out of basic illusory effects and knowing lies in the production of an art-experience. The exhibition plays on the mechanisms that urge a conscious suspension of disbelief in the spectator, upon the construction of a possible agreement that encourages more active engagement in the processing of experience and artistic narratives.

When the City Speaks: The City is a Stage
– Liverpool Exhibition, at the South Bohemia Gallery, Liverpool, England, Curated by Jo Derbyshire, 10th August 2007 – 22nd August 2007.

Artists from Liverpool, across Britain and abroad, have contributed to a creative research initiative ‘When the City Speaks – The City is a Stage’, conceived by the Curator, Jo Derbyshire.

This programme is in three stages and commenced with Liverpool on 30 June 2007, where artists collectively and in their independent practice explored the urban space of the city. From this cultural enquiry, each artist derived a piece of art work to denote their experiences of the city space.

The art produced now forms a collection and is to be exhibited at the ‘South Bohemia Gallery’ (Liverpool, England) to delineate the artistic perceptions of the urban environment in a gallery context.
This exhibition will run from 10th – 22nd August 2007.
Opening: Friday 10th August 2007, 7.00 pm onwards.

Art Circus will present a Shadow Puppetry Wokshop on Saturday 11th August, 1pm – 5pm for young people aged 7-12. The workshop will include drawing, shadow puppet making, story telling, puppet performance & filming. Cost £4. To reserve a place call the Bluecoat Display Centre, Hanover Street on 709 1555
