unfold Exhibition Opening

11 March / 5pm - 7.30pm / Galleries 1 & 2 / FREE


Feel the universe as we launch our new exhibition unfold, by Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa.


This groundbreaking, cross-disciplinary exhibition will Kurokowa’s first UK solo show, bringing together the fields of art and science.

Astrophysicists at the Research Institute in the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (CEA, France) have granted Kurokawa the unique opportunity to explore space data which may hold the secrets behind the birth of stars.


Using these previously undocumented findings, Kurokawa has developed a new body of work, unfold. The exhibition at FACT marks the world premiere of bringing this data to life in a fully immersive audio/visual environment.


For the opening night of the show, Bido Lito! will be joined by two of Liverpool’s avant-garde electronic musicians, LING and Kepla, for a live DJ set. We'll also be serving up complimentary space-themed cocktails, courtesy of Maray.

unfold is co-commissioned between FACT, Stereolux and University of Salford Art Collection, with the support of CEA Irfu, Paris-Saclay, Arcadi and DICRéAM
