we had to closeNick
November due to local lockdown restrictions in Liverpool in 2020, Smith
to collaborate with a local writer. We invited Niloo Sharifi to visit
the closed show and write a response. After sharing her writing, which
took into consideration Smith's exhibition where he reflected on his
youth growing up in Merseyside from 1974-1996 - a turbulent period for
the region, Smith responded back to her text with images and video and
brought their work together in this short film. We originally premiered
the film on IGTV but now the gallery was able to open again, we
are projecting it in the space for visitors to enjoy in a new setting.
exhibition is open 11am-5pm, Thursday-Sunday until June 6th. There are
beanbags and plastic seating in the space, which will be cleaned
regularly. If there is a group in the space, you may be asked to wait
for them to exit.
