The Education Deanery Art Studio, recently relocated to the Green Lane Building at Hope Park, invites you to an exhibition of art work by Hope BA(QTS) Art Curriculum students and ‘SOUP’; an evolving group of artists all of whom work within Liverpool’s prestigious TATE Gallery.
To mark this occasion, there will be a 70’s Retrospective exhibition of former students’ artwork and photography, alongside work by our
current BA(QTS) students. The exhibition will include a print workshop, led by a member of ‘SOUP’, for students involved in this year’s
HEARTS Project (Higher Education ARTS in Schools).
The project involves arts specialist students from both the BA(QTS) and other education degree pathways. Working in collaboration with educators and artists-in-residence on combined arts projects in primary schools, HEARTS’ aim is to develop new and innovative approaches in initial teacher education and continuing professional development for teachers.
SOUP was set up in 2001, by a group of artists who all work together at the Tate Gallery, Liverpool.
Since then the group has been in a constant state of flux, while some have left to do other things, other artists have joined in their place.
All members are artists in their own right, each following their own projects, independently from SOUP.
The group has exhibited in numerous locations throughout the North West. In 2006, the group joined with staff from the Walker Art Gallery, to showcase their work at the Albany’s Cube Noir, as part of the Liverpool Biennial Independents exhibition. Their latest venture was collaboration with staff from The Henry Moore Institute in Leeds, over the Biennial period of 2008. This led to numerous exhibitions
throughout Liverpool city centre, including Tate Liverpool, and an equal amount of venues throughout Leeds.
With Liverpool being the European Capital of Culture in 2008, the group has seized the opportunity of exhibiting to a much wider audience across the city via exhibitions in a diverse selection of venues, from retail outlets in the city centre to within the Tate itself. Future exhibitions Soup have planned include St Helens the Citadel which opens in January 2009.
