Liverpool: European Capital of Culture 08 'LIVE FROM KOREA'

Established in 1998, Liverpool Biennial is the UK’s largest and most widely reviewed festival. Celebrating the tenth anniversary of its foundation by James Moores, the fifth edition of Liverpool Biennial will be even more impressive in scale and ambition than its predecessors, and a key event in Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture 2008. Consisting of around 40 new projects by leading and emerging international artists – principally new commissions alongside a few works previously unseen in the UK - MADE UP will be presented across multiple venues: Tate Liverpool, the Bluecoat, FACT (Foundation for Art & Creative Technology) and Open Eye, with half the exhibition sited in public spaces across the city. The curators for MADE UP are drawn from each of the partner venues and led by Liverpool Biennial Artistic Director, Lewis Biggs. Liverpool Biennial continues to place an emphasis on commissioning new work from leading and emerging international artists. Korean programmes in the 2008 Liverpool Biennial festival will be:
