IB18: George Henry Lees: A Long The Riverrun
Venue: George Henry Lee's
Dates: 14/07/2018 - 29/07/2018
Times: 11:00 - 18:00
This summer, eleven of the city’s leading visual artists will exhibit in a show for the Independents Biennial exploring current practice in contemporary painting in Liverpool.
From 14-29 July 2018 the former George Henry Lees department store will be transformed into a temporary exhibition space to offer a unique snapshot of modern figurative and abstract painting in Liverpool.
Taking its title from the first and last lines of James Joyce’s novel Finnegans Wake in which the first and last lines join the end to the beginning to start again, a long the riverrun joins together artists with different forms of practice but a common sense of endeavour that is both playful and serious.
The exhibition will occupy the ground floor of the historic store building which first opened in 1897.
Exhibition organised by the artists, co-curated by Paul Mellor and John Elcock.
