Matt Ford and Dot-Art present The Art Show S/S12

The Art Show is a bold amalgamation of fine art, live performance and music.

Four breakthrough fine artists from Liverpool, short listed for their experimental artworks of the local cityscape, will exhibit this body of work as well as new artwork depicting personal notions of contemporary culture in Liverpool. This new work includes the silkscreen print collection by Art Show curator Matt Ford titled Bruise. The collection, a collaboration with Liverpool play writer John Maguire, explores the taboo subject of domestic violence also covered in the recent stage play under the same title.

The exhibition will feature a fascinating and eclectic range of style, talent and media, including photography, illustration, silkscreen print and paint. The Art Show is also proud to announce the live line up for their S/S12 event. Nationally renowned a cappella vocal ensemble, Sense of Sound Singers will be performing from their new collection, songs of Joni Mitchell. With Brit Award Winner Damon Albarn as a patron and past performances with the likes of Seal, Russell Watson and Jocelyn Brown, their funky distinctive style promises to dazzle.

A DJ set from CantMixWontMixShdntMixDontMix will follow this. The dynamic collective, famed for their boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm, have played Creamfields, Lake of Stars Festival Malawi, Isle of White festival and have enjoyed several sets at Liverpool’s big hitter Chibuku.

The Art Show S/S12 will be an unforgettable evening for any art and music lovers as well a unique opportunity to purchase contemporary fine art produced here in Liverpool. Prices range from around £80-£1000. Including limited edition prints and one-off pieces.

The exhibition and opportunity to purchase the artworks continues Friday 4th – Sunday 6th May, 11am – 6pm
