A long the riverrun. Liverpool Independents and Iconic Department Store

Contemporary Painting at the Liverpool Independents Biennial 2018
14 July - 29 July 2018
From 14-29 July 2018 the former George Henry Lees department store will be transformed
into a temporary exhibition space to offer a unique snapshot of modern figurative and
abstract painting in Liverpool.

Taking its title from the first and last lines of James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake in which
the first and last lines join the end to the beginning to start again, the exhibition joins
together artists with different forms of practice but a common sense of endeavour that is
both playful and serious.
The exhibition will occupy the ground floor of the historic store building which first opened in
1897.
