Your guide to the Liverpool Biennial
IN THIS week's Liverpool Post I've themed the Post Culture arts supplement around the Liverpool Biennial - dedicating eight pages to the festival of contemporary art. It's as comprehensive a guide as is possible in the space we have and there'll be plenty more interviews with Biennial artists to come over the next 10 weeks.
The reason I'm writing about this here - and not just providing you with links once the content has gone online - is that not all of it will be available on the web. Most notably is the centrespread pull-out art work created by Singapore-born, Berlin-based Ming Wong, who is the first of 10 artists we have invited to create a piece of work especially for Liverpool Post readers. Every week of the Biennial we will be running a different work inside Post Culture and your only opportunity to get hold of one will be by buying a copy of the Liverpool Post each Thursday.
Also inside Post Culture this week is a four page Biennial activities guide for families, which has been created by the Liverpool Biennial's own design team and is filled with fun and creative ways of getting involved in the festival.
There are just a few days until the Biennial begins and there's already a buzz building around the city. Have you seen either of these art works yet?
Biennial press day is always a career highlight for me as I finally get to see the art works I have been hearing and writing about for months with my own eyes. It is never quite what I expected.
This year's festival promises to be even more exciting than before and, with themed weekends and a fuller events programme, even busier. I can't get to everything but I will try my best to fill some of the gaps in my own coverage by featuring your tweets, photos, videos etc on this blog. If you have anything you'd like me to include then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will of course include a link to your own blog/website. And if you'd like to write a guest blog post just let me know and we'll set it up.
