SATURDAY 16 July 12.00-15.00 at The Bluecoat-  John Moores Painting Prize Shanghai: Meet the Artists

Four prizewinners from the first John Moores Painting Prize Shanghai are in residence this summer in Liverpool, hosted by Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool Biennial.

Zou Tao, Zhang Wei, Zhang Zhenxue and Li Zhouwei will be talking about their work at the Bluecoat on Saturday 16 July. It will be an informal event in our Garden Room where some of their paintings will be on display and they will also give short presentations about their work. This will be between 12pm and 1.30pm, and they will then be around until 3pm to meet people informally over a cup of tea.

The residency is part of an ongoing cultural exchange between Liverpool and Shanghai, and the Bluecoat is hoping to develop opportunities for Liverpool artists to be involved in future exchanges. Come along to find out about what is happening in contemporary Chinese art from four of the country’s leading young painters.

The event is free.
