With Art in Liverpool not posting much and the Bluecoat just losing one of their marketing staff, here is one for the Bluecoat...

Responding to 2011’s Liverpool: City of Radicals theme, this exhibition draws on cultural and political narratives from the past century and asks what constitutes radical art practice today? The theme is prompted by events 100 years ago that had a profound cultural, architectural and political impact: a seminal exhibition by the Post-Impressionists at the Bluecoat, the opening of the Liver Building, controversial in its design and cast-concrete fabrication, and the transport strike that brought the city ‘near to revolution’. The title Democratic Promenade is taken from Walter Dixon Scott’s description of the Landing Stage in his 1907 book Liverpool.
