Our Team

About Us

We are an artist lead initiative; A community and contemporary arts gallery based in Bloom Building, Birkenhead. With our outreach still working at Birkenhead Market, and other local spaces.

We offer a space for early career & local artists to exhibit, create and meet.

We have ran a series of exhibitions in a responsive programme, including recent graduates, collectives, open calls, and our current exhibition is showcasing Dinu Li, as part of the Look Photo Biennial.


History

Formed in May 2019, at Birkenhead Market. We ran a series of Open Conversations and an Open Call to artists to inform the programme we would lead.

What followed was several exhibitions, including Open Call #1, TV Babies Collective show, Joana de Oliveira Guerreiro solo show, Burst Our Bubble (LJMU 2019 Graduates show), and latterly Anatomy of Place, Dinu Li (As part of the Look Photo Biennial).

A series of workshops with some of the great local artists, Jocelyn Allen, Claire Henderson, Lois Tierney, Rob Flynn, and from Manchester, Ash van Dyck & Ellie Brennan. As well as plenty more. The aim of these to help the artists build a workshop they could take to new space, and get them paid too. As well as allowing the local community to access free, or affordable workshops exploring various creative mediums.

In October we begun a lecture series in collaboration with LJMU, Bloom Building, John Hyatt's Dark Side Art Lab, called Thinking Out Loud. These inviting lecturers from John Moores, to lead seminar style talks around their personal research topics.

From November we began to work more closely with The Bloom building & Coffee, and The Open Door Centre. Where in 2020 we will be leading our new programme from.
