The University of Liverpool’s Research and Partnership Development Team have joined the Department of Music’s Open Circuit Festival to run a celebratory event at partner institution Tate Liverpool. All staff and students are invited to attend for free on Monday, 4 March, 2019.
Staff, students and invited guests will have one of the last chances to see and hear about the University supported exhibition, New Times, New Pleasures, by modernist painter Fernand Léger and hear from distinguished speakers from the University. The University’s Open Circuit musicians, Matt Fairclough and Richard Worth, will provide a musical response to the work of Lèger with a new flute and live electronics piece which will be performed in and around the gallery.
The event will reflect on the past three years of the University’s successful Partnership with Tate and how the collaborative projects have enabled academics and students from a range of departments to enrich their research and to contribute to the cultural life of the city. Guests will then hear about the future of the collaboration and be introduced to the University’s Open Circuit Festival off campus for the first time, opening up new audiences and bringing new dimensions to the exhibition.
