Sponsor the Liverpool Art Month

You can Sponsor the Liverpool Art Month

The Liverpool Art Prize is a competition of contemporary art, which was inspired by the Turner Prize and began in 2008. It is open to all professional artists based or born in the Liverpool City Region or in the surrounding boroughs of Liverpool, Wirral, St Helens, Knowsley, Halton and Sefton. Now in its fifth year, The Liverpool Art Prize exhibition takes place at Metal Liverpool.

This year, some of Liverpool’s studio groups and galleries have come together to develop Liverpool Art Month. This will take the form of an exciting programme of events, exhibitions and workshops for Liverpool during the month of May 2012. This is the perfect chance to discover several local artists and their working environment throughout a series of interconnected happenings and performances. Visitors can also buy some artworks at affordable prices.

By backing our project, not only do you receive a huge thank you and certain special edition memorabilia of the project, but you also get the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped to support what promises to be a wide programme of events to showcase the talent of artists based in Liverpool for all to enjoy.

Participating organisations include:

Arena Studios & Gallery
The Bluecoat
The Bridewell
The Gallery
Liverpool John Moores University
Red Wire

Some events will also be taking place as part of Open Culture’s Lightnight

Metal was founded by Jude Kelly OBE in 2002 and was created as an artistic laboratory to champion the need for continual investment in artistic investigation and the development of innovative ideas that could shift the thinking in the UK cultural sector.

We provide innovative, multi-disciplinary residency space for artists from the UK and overseas in Liverpool and Southend on Sea.

Alongside providing space for artists and thinkers to develop their ideas and further the philosophy of their work, we are interested in how this artistic process, and the practice of artists can input into, and potentially influence political and social issues of the day.

Through our artistic programme we draw out evidence and ideas for a better understanding of the artist’s role in civic life, and ensure that these are shared with a wide and diverse set of partners.

These ideas are showcased and disseminated on a regular basis through residencies, exhibitions, events, performance, discussion and publications.
