Edge Hill University and Tate Liverpool partnership announce exciting summer events programme

EDGE Hill University's ongoing partnership with Tate Liverpool will see an exciting programme of events take place over the coming months, including a film screening and in conversation evening about artist Francis Bacon.  To celebrate the exhibition:- 'Francis Bacon - Invisible Rooms', which runs until 18 September 2016, the University's Institute for Creative Enterprise, an initiative that connects students with leaders in the creative and cultural industries, will host the evening in partnership with Tate Liverpool. The free event will comprise a screening of 'Love is the Devil.' Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon, followed by an in conversation discussion with curator of the Francis Bacon exhibition:- 'Kasia Redzisz.'

Roger Shannon, Professor of Film and Television and Director of the Institute for Creative Enterprise said:- "The Francis Bacon evening will build on the success of previous partnership events. The 'in conversations' we've held with Tate Liverpool so far about artists Leonora Carrington and Jackson Pollock have introduced themes of contemporary artistic relevance and contributed greatly to the intellectual environment of this University's 'creative campus'. The Francis Bacon evening and other planned events will continue in this vein by bringing the curators of Tate Liverpool's major international exhibitions onto the Edge Hill campus to discuss with students and lecturers the stimulating background to the work being displayed in Tate Liverpool's critically acclaimed exhibitions."

Edge Hill has also signed on as a sponsor of the 'Yves Klein' exhibition. Launching on 21 October 2016, it is the UK's 1st museum solo exhibition in more than 20 years of the French artist. 1 of the most influential figures of the post war era, Klein's career was marked by extraordinary creativity and a bold attitude to art and life that was pivotal to later movements from pop to performance art and beyond. Presenting around 30 major works the exhibition throws fresh light on his artistic practice. Mark Allanson, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Edge Hill University said that the institution's relationship with Tate Liverpool is invaluable to the creative development of students. "The Tate Liverpool programme provokes, inspires and starts conversations. Our partnership with Tate adds a dimension to the student experience by making a world class, innovative gallery readily available to be explored. Projects flowing from the partnership provide students on creative courses such as dance, film and writing, invaluable opportunities to enhance their knowledge and employability."

Andrea Nixon, Executive Director, Tate Liverpool added:- "Partnership and collaboration is at the heart of what we do here at Tate Liverpool. We're thrilled to be continuing and developing our relationship with Edge Hill University which allows us to engage with student audiences and create fantastic joint programme together."
