A Needle Walks into a Haystack

Date uploaded: April 22, 2014

The 8th Liverpool Biennial Exhibition, entitled 'A Needle Walks into a Haystack', takes place this year from 5th July - 26th October 2014; in venues, public spaces and galleries across the city.

The Biennial will be curated by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman, with events hosted in venues including the former Trade Union Centre, the Bluecoat, FACT and Tate Liverpool. Also featured as part of Liverpool Biennial 2014 are the John Moores Painting Prize, Bloomberg New Contemporaries, exhibitions at Open Eye Gallery and LJMU's Exhibition Research Centre (Partner Exhibitions).

"A Needle Walks into a Haystack is an exhibition that disrupts the way we assume our habits and experience our habitats. Curated by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman, it presents artists who draw upon and reconfigure the objects, images, relationships and activities that constitute their immediate surroundings. Whilst addressing larger questions facing contemporary life and art, these artists work on a scale that is intimate, tangible and within everyday reach."
