Visit our gallery at 14 Queen Avenue in Liverpool’s commercial district, a 5 minute walk from Liverpool ONE, where we hold regularly changing exhibitions of our member artists work.
Friday 24 May – Saturday 6 July (Private View 23rd May, 5-7pm, all welcome)
dot-art and Liverpool music and culture magazine Bido Lito! are teaming up to curate and present an exhibition of work which seeks to critique and contemplate our city’s creative future.
Today, our city’s creative community faces a unique set of challenges and opportunities; from rapid digitisation to the rising prominence of AI. As a community what do we foresee; a dystopian, culture-less nightmare or a utopian, technicolour dream? What will be the key issues and challenges, opportunities and changes we’ll be grappling with in 2028? What will Liverpool’s new music and creative culture look like in another 100 Bido Lito! editions’ time?
How much can a city change in nine years? What will the cultural ecosystem look like? Will the way we work as creatives have moved on? Will digital have completely taken over from traditional methods of communication, art production and sharing, or will a backlash lead to the re-emergence of once lost skills? Will technology extend or diminish our creative capacity?
“Liverpool, 2028” will open in the dot-art Gallery, alongside a number of other exciting projects in celebration of Bido Lito!‘s centenary edition, on Friday 23rd May.
Guided by the theme of speculation and foresight, we have invited artists based in the Liverpool City Region to show us a future not yet determined. Six artists have been selected and their artwork will soon be on display and for sale from the gallery.
This exhibition starts on Friday 24 May and runs to Saturday 6 July. Entry is free and all are welcome.
