STARTS: David Jacques: The Irlam House Bequest

WEDNESDAY 2 February 2011 at Walker Art Gallery
The Irlam House Bequest is a fictional subversive banner workshop “discovered” in an abandoned flat in Irlam House, a tower block in Bootle. Winner of the Liverpool Art Prize 2010 and nominated for this year’s Northern Art Prize, David Jacques’ installation is inspired by the history of trade union banners and the entrepreneur George Tutil, whose workshop dominated banner production in the nineteenth century.
