3 pm at Tate Liverpool
Curator Tour of Charline von Heyl: Now or Else
Join Gavin Delahunty, Head of Exhibitions at Tate Liverpool for a tour of Charline von Heyl: Now or Else.
Distinctive, imaginative and always surprising, Charline von Heyl’s work offers a fresh and exciting approach to the world of abstract art. Von Heyl is at the forefront of a new generation of abstract painters who have rejected late modernism’s emphasis on a singular signature style. Charline von Heyl at Tate Liverpool will be the first major exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK. Featuring forty two of her large canvasses and a number of unique works on paper.
Visitors are required to purchase an exhibition ticket, £7.20 (£5.40 concs.)
6-8 pm at the Bluecoat
Topophobia Private View
Fear of place is the focus of this exhibition. Ten artists – Anne Eggebert, Matze Einhoff, David Ferrando Giraut, Polly Gould, Marja Helander, Uta Kogelsberger, Abigail Reynolds, Almut Rink, Emily Speed and Louise K Wilson – respond to this intriguing subject through drawing, video, painting, photography sculpture, sound and installation.
7-9 pm at Arena Studios & Gallery
A Collaborative Installation by Arena artists, Niamh Crimson and Carol Ramsay with sound by Iain Yell.
Digital technology has replaced the cassette tape but can we ever forget the pleasure taken in ‘taping’ the Top 40 from the Radio on a Sunday night or making a mix tape of favourite songs for the one you loved. This installation is a celebration and a reinvention of the Joy of Tape.
8pm-Midnight at Camp and Furnace 9
