19 October 2012

Our galleries are open until late on Friday 19 October, come down to see Jemima Wyman's stunning weavings, play Pedro Reyes's parlour games, watch a new commission from Anja Kirschner & David Panos, and explore a collection of works from Akram Zaatari. Join in with a Weaving workshop and contribute to Jemima Wyman's Collective Covering, Communal Skin which is slowly taking over our entire ground floor. We're also hosting a sold out event, Break Bread Open, a special programme of food, screenings and discussions exploring ideas of the host, guest and our role as public.

Some of our neighbours are getting in on the act with The Bluecoat, 28 - 32 Wood Street, and The Monro all hosting special events, free activities and late night exhibitions.

The Bluecoat will be open until 10pm with free family activities, food, drink, music, printmaking and craft demonstrations, as well as some 'unexpected guests' from Shiverpool. John Akomfrah's incredible The Unfinished Conversation will be open late along with the rest of the Bluecoat's Biennial exhibition.

28 - 32 Wood Street, home to Ming Wong's Making Chinatown will be open until 10pm. His work takes him on a journey through the world's Chinatowns looking at the identity and image of Chinese people. He is led finally to Liverpool, the home of the oldest Chinese community in the UK.

Open until 10pm tonight, The Monro on Duke Street is hosting work by Finnish artist Markus Kåhre, Spectral Readings (Liverpool) and Ghost Readings by Dane Mitchell and Janine Antoni's Umbilical.

The entire city will be full of the best visual art, culture and activities suitable for the whole family. If you can't usually make it to galleries during the day, this is your perfect chance to see everything the Biennial and Liverpool has to offer!
