Curated by Grizedale Arts

A cultural car crash of events including Mod culture, the re-enactment of local petty crimes from the 1950s, a madrigal choir, an erotic dancer, a 14ft stone xylophone, an isolated nuclear town, radio broadcasts, four legendary funk stars and a working farm are brought together in Liverpool for Virtual Grizedale. One of the main launch events for Liverpool's major new contemporary art venue Greenland Street, At Afoundation's Blade Factory and surrounding streets, Virtual Grizedale is the acting-out of a website, drawing together work from all Grizedale Arts' current projects in Japan, Egremont and Coniston in Cumbria, China and Liverpool itself.

 

image All these projects are linked in their ambition to make a constructive impact on communities and suggest alternative approaches to regeneration. As part of this eclectic mix, Thinking Space for the North presents new designs for a farm interior: a bureau by Artist House and a panelling system by Dan Robinson. Both are part of an interior scheme for a study space and archive reflecting the farm's ongoing self-invention. Also displayed are photographs taken by Polly Braden and other material from a 10-day public opening during last year's Coniston Water Festival.
