8 – 22 October 2010
Private View: Friday 8 October 2010, 18.00 – 21.00
(Admission to the tunnels is free during the Private View event)
The Surface Collective, a diverse group of nine national and international artists, have come together to create a multi-disciplinary, site specific exhibition. Artists: Pamela Sullivan, Lucy Jones, Richard Robinson, Pauline Walmsley, Oliver Lomax, Siobhan Carmichael, Laura Ferguson, Bronek Kram, Maria Stuart.

Their exhibition, Come into View is an exploration of ideas focused around Liverpool’s famous Williamson Tunnels and will see a series of art works created and installed in response to the Tunnels unique atmosphere and history.

The artists were initially enticed and intrigued by the eccentric nature of the site and its creator. The origin and purpose of the Tunnels is surrounded in myth and speculation and new discoveries as to its construction and purpose only serve to heighten its allure as an unconventional venue to work and exhibit in.

The eclectic background of the artists within the collective from visual artists, painters, film makers, sculptors and ceramicists to illustrators and graphic designers serves to produce an intriguing exhibition that utilises this diversity to bring nine unique perspectives and responses to the venue.

Part of the Independents Liverpool Biennial strand.
