Digital Window Gallery: Independents Biennial

18 March - 6 June 2021

DIGITAL EXHIBITION: THURSDAY — SUNDAY

 

Independents Biennial exists to celebrate the region’s creative life and cast a fresh perspective on how people in Merseyside see, make and use art. For the first time, the focus of the festival sits in an intersection between digital and analogue programming; between physical and online connectedness; between text and image. 

We’ll be sharing the work of three artists on our Digital Window Gallery, whose work considers:

How do we use photography today?

How can photography change the way we see each other?

What role can images play in making and sustaining connections?

Each artist will exhibit their work digitally on the gallery’s exterior screen, take over the gallery’s Instagram account and take part in an online discussion over the course of the Independents Biennial.

 

SAM VENABLES

Exhibition: 18 MAR — 11 APR

Instagram Residency: 18 — 22 MAR

 

FEIYI WEN

Exhibition: 15 APR — 09 MAY

Instagram Residency: 15 — 19 APR

 

MONTSE MOSQUERA

Exhibition:13 MAY — 06 JUN

Instagram Residency: 13 — 17 MAY

 

Working in partnership with Metal Liverpool, Open Eye Gallery, St Helens Arts in Libraries, Liverpool Biennial and more, the ACE funded programme will present work in progress by: Jay Hampton, Sufea Mohamad Noor, Sorrell Kerrison, Pierce Starre, Feiyi Wen, Montse Mosquera, Sam Venables, ROOT-ed, Mark Simmonds, Emmer Winder, Fiona Stirling, Grace Collins, George Grace Gibson, Kevin Crooks, Sarah Gilman, Stephanie Fry, FOUR WORDS, Rule of Threes, Mark Hobbs, Avoid HaHa, Jo Mary Watson, Matthew Retallick, Harriet Burns & Elizabeth Challinor
