Exhibition: North: Identity, Photography, Fashion
6 January - 19 March 2017
Open Eye Gallery turns 40 in 2017 & will be celebrating with an exhibit examining the identity of the North. North explores the way the region is depicted, constructed and celebrated in select photographs, artworks and fashion collections. The show brings together collective visions of the North, unpicking the tropes and themes that appear regularly in design and media and takes into account the rich cultural history of the region.
Open Eye Gallery is one of the UK's leading photography spaces.
Location: 19 Mann Island, L3 1BP

2017 symbolises the year of the Rooster – those born in 1957 or 2017 are fire roosters, who are said to be trustworthy, responsible at work and have a strong sense of timekeeping.
As always, the Liverpool street festivities will be fun-filled, with plenty of activities for children and adults to enjoy.
Liverpool will celebrate the Year of the Rooster with projections in Chinatown telling the story of Jingwei and the Ocean.
Lighting up the Chinese Arch, the Black-E and The Arch for an hour each night, the beautiful lumiere creation will be based on the story of the emperor’s daughter who, after perishing at sea, transformed into a bird and endeavoured to fill the ocean with twigs and stones to prevent anyone else from meeting the same fate. The story will be adapted to showcase how Chinatowns around the world, have developed from the seeds sown and the pebbles laid by the earliest Chinese settlers, and how these small ‘islands’ have developed into the vibrant and diverse communities we see today.
The twelve minute show will run on a loop for an hour on Friday and Saturday nights from 7.30-8.30pm and on the Sunday it will be on display from 5-6pm.
The traditional Chinese New Year celebrations will also take place on Sunday 29 January 2017 with a series of street performances, family workshops, art installations, parades and of course the popular Chinese market on George Street selling gifts, souvenirs and mouth-watering food.

Happy Chinese New Year!
