Liverpool Biennial 2008


20 September 2008 - 30 November 2008


Celebrating 10 years of commissioning ambitious and challenging new work by leading international artists, the fifth edition of Liverpool Biennial’s International exhibition was an exploration of the power of the artistic imagination.

MADE UP saw imagination as the dynamo of art. At the heart of this exhibition’s broad ranging exploration of ‘making things up’ (which includes utopias and dystopias, narrative fiction, fantasy, myths, lies, prophesies, subversion and spectacle) was the emotional charge which powers the artistic imagination.
