I enjoyed this exhibition which is spread around the ground floor of the former public house. A good mix of the serious, humorous, weird and crude.
It was initiated in response to Liverpool and Stavanger’s joint Capital of Culture 2008 status with lots of too-ing and fro-ing by artists from the two areas over the last year or two.
There’s no point in me describing every exhibit, there is very little drawing or painting, lots of conceptual, installation, intervention and videos. I recommend you go and see for yourself, take your brain and sense of humour with you, they will be well exercised and you’ll feel all the better for it.
