The work of Pedro Reyes has already proved a big hit with Biennial visitors. His artwork Melodrama and Other Games was named as a festival highlight by Culture24, as well as being a favourite of the infamous art critic Adrian Searle, who described in his Guardian column how he had enjoyed "playing a sexed-up version of snakes and ladders with the Mexican cultural attaché, while small children milled about, whacking each other in a pillow fight".
Pedro was also one of the Liverpool Echo's top ten picks for the Biennial.
The Digital Aesthetic project went on Twitter to say they greatly recommended seeing Ultimate Substance by Anja Kirschner and David Panos, which they said was "truly captivating"; and the international media is also recognising the importance of our work from Akram Zaatari, one of the Middle East's foremost filmmakers and photographers.
People of all ages, from school classes to community groups have been taking part in weaving workshops to continue to create Jemima Wyman's hula hoop weavings, which you can see hanging in the main public space.
There really is something for everyone at FACT this Biennial - and plenty of opportunity to catch it! Join us for our late-night openings until 9pm, every Wednesday.
