Liverpool Biennial

Students and staff at UCLan visited Liverpool Biennial and were involved in researching and gathering inspiration from the exhibited artists. Students were then required to photographically respond to an artist’s work or produce a response to the key themes explored in their work. The images attached were taken by Course Leader John Aitken as a document of the trip.
