Two legendary sci-fi icons can be seen on the silver screen at FACT this week.
Get your diary ready – it’s about to get filled. We’ve picked 77 things (plus a few extra chucked in for good luck, of course) happening in the region over the next couple of months – deliberately jumbling things up, it means you can dive in, mooch around and take your pick. Over half the [...]
When the Arts Council announced that they’d pulled the plug on Anthony MacCall’s column of steam yesterday, we guess the only real surprise was that it took them so long to come to their decision. So much time, and so much money. We kind of figured that it wasn’t going to work when the Cultural [...]
Museum of Butts RUMP You can’t keep a good butt down. Actually, that’s quite true. A good butt does tend to defy gravity somewhat. And, in the online Metropolitan Museum of Butts, the finely chiseled globes of Gods, Goddesses and, erm, lions are roundly on display. Ooh, the cheek of it. metropolitanmuseumofbutts.tumblr.com GIT Awards AWARDS [...]
So I’m wandering around The Art of Pop at Fact, making notes into my iPhone, deconstructing the concepts, contextualising the cultural signifiers and generally being a twat. Then I stop, and decide to just bloody enjoy it. FACT’s Art of Pop is a head rush of an exhibition, throwing everything at the wall to see [...]
A Liverpool alumni returns to the city for a Q+A and screening of his new film about a very different, secret, City.
When we heard FACT were planning an ultra-special exhibition dedicated to pop videos this year, we were kinda-sorta-very excited. Music videos have gone through varying states of flux – from MTV’s glory years, with 24/7 music video programming, to the on-demand streaming of YouTube, but they’ve always been one thing: relentlessly creative. These short bursts [...]
Leaf presents The Garden, the new cafe and events space at FACT from the people behind Bold Street’s popular hang-out.
It’s a FACT milestone this year, and they sure as hell aren’t doing things by halves. This weekend (23rd February) is ten years to the day when the audio-visual-arts-and-everything-inbetween hub flung open its doors. To celebrate, they’re laying on a day of packed birthday activities, all with FACT’s typical inquisitive, fun, inspiring slant. If you’ve [...]
We’re excited about this year’s Liverpool Lift-Off Film Fest. Though FACT (and, previously, Wolstenholme Creative Space) have brought bleeding-edge indie films to the city, this well curated four-day event really packs ‘em in, and all for a wallet-friendly price tag. They’re bringing movies from far and wide to Liverpool in a programme that spans four [...]
When a trailer’s this good, imagine what the exhibition will be like? After the Glam of Tate comes the headrush of Art of Pop at FACT. And we can’t wait. Take a look at the goodies headed our way, from Fred Astaire to Lady Gaga – via a special performance from Outfit (a new Outfit [...]
Japanese drain covers COOL THING Manholes. Not the sexiest way to kick off a Weekly Seven. The yucky, blotchy blemishes make our roads even uglier than they normally are – but, it turns out, they’re regularly given a beautiful makeover in Japan. In fact, it’s at such a point that local councils compete against each [...]
The best news we’ve read all week: director/writer/producer Tommy Wiseau is set to visit FACT for a special screening of his cult movie ‘The Room’ next month. If you’re not familiar with ‘The Room’, it’s got a fascinating, and rather hilarious history. Intended to be a romantic drama (though retrospectively called a ‘black comedy’ by [...]
A rare chance to see Terence Davies’ Liverpool love letter this weekend at Picturehouse.
There is, undoubtedly, lots of science behind FACT’s new Winter Sparks show. But, like those Christmas Royal Institution lectures, our advice is to skip the boring backstory and just indulge in the sensory thrill of the experiments. Charged with shock and awe, this exhibition features work from four spine-tingling international new media artists, offering a [...]
