We're excited to announce our next exhibition!
Ebb and Flow is an audio, visual survey of the history and changes that have taken place within the oldest Chinese community in Europe, and draws from the rich selection of photographic prints preserved in the Open Eye Gallery Archive, including Bert Hardy and Martin Parr. Alongside these historical images, this exhibition also includes two contemporary works exploring the Chinatown that Liverpool is home to now. Liverpool based artist duo John Campbell & Moira Kenny, The Sound Agents, have been funded by Heritage Lottery Fund to record Liverpool Chinatown Oral History, creating an audio visual digital archive of interviews, personal documents and photographs. UK based photographer Jamie Lau has been commissioned by Open Eye Gallery to create a new body of work, looking at the Chinese community as it is now.
