Centre of the Creative Universe: Liverpool and the Avant-Garde

Sunday brunch & tour of this very popular display of art from the national collection.

To coincide with Liverpool’s 800th anniversary celebrations, this major exhibition investigates how the city has influenced and inspired a diverse range of important post-war artists. Centre of the Creative Universe, which takes its title from a statement by Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, explores how artists have contributed to an external view of Liverpool in people’s imaginations, and reveals, as well as challenges, myths of the creative scene in the city over the past four decades.

  1. I know it’s the press release and not you Ian but…

    What on earth does ‘like-minded’ mean here?

    Have they got heavies on the door with a questionnaire?

  2. he-he. Well I suppose if you’re interested in going to an exhib at the Tate then that makes you like all the others who do so.
    How’s that for generalisation.

  3. The terms ‘Avant Garde’ is being assigned to so much today. At most where it has applied is retrospectively in an historical context. I would like to see something of the contemporary, not singularly to the chronology and bygone, but on par with regeneration the term applied – Art now from the city!

    Please refer to the definition from Wikipedia:

    Avant-garde … in French means front guard, advance guard, or vanguard. People often use the term in French and English to refer to people or works that are experimental or novel, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics.

    According to its champions, the avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm within definitions of art/culture/reality.
