John Moores Painting Prize 2018

Bankley member Joe O'Rourke is one of five prize-winning finalists nominated to win the John Moores Painting Prize, with his painting 'GIANTS'.

The John Moores Painting Prize 2018 exhibition will take place between 14 July - 18 November 2018. The gallery is open Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm.

First held in 1957, the John Moores Painting Prize is the UK's best-known painting competition and is named after Sir John Moores (1896-1993), the sponsor of the prize. The competition culminates in an exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery every two years, which forms a key strand of the Liverpool Biennial.

The name of the first prize winning artist for John Moores Painting Prize 2018 will be announced on Thursday 12 July.

For Posterity - Castlefield Gallery

Launch Evening: Thursday 12th February, 6-8pm
Open: Wed-Sun, 13 - 22nd February, 1-6pm

Bankley studio holder and CG Associate member Lucy Harvey has been selected to curate Castlefield Gallery's next Launch Pad exhibition. The exhibition will include works by Rosanne Robertson, Richard Proffitt, Cherry Tenneson, Fliss Quick, Hannah Leighton-Boyce, Lucy Harvey.

The exhibition title is drawn from Harvey’s research into traditional crafts and Burnley-based filmmaker, Sam Hanna’s documentaries (1940-80) which, in his own words, depict “old English crafts captured for posterity”. For Posterity brings together six artists whose practice engages with chance, failure and the functions of objects. Working across sculpture, installation, film and performance they present the transformative ways in which artists invent and reinterpret history, place and language.

An exhibition Curated by Elizabeth Wewiora and Matthew Pendergast at TOAST

Hankering for Classification presents new and existing work by ten artists from across the UK, who employ methods of classification, archiving and collecting. The exhibition will also include bespoke exhibition design developed by artist Poppy Whatmore.

Through the experience of differences and relations between things, we determine the meaning they have for us. In a variety of mediums including sculpture, performance, painting and video the artists in this exhibition carry out our shared compulsion to organize, record and curate the world around us, with a will to make sense of it. Whatmore’s reworking of traditional exhibition design will visually and physically connect the art works together emphasizing the nature of an exhibition as a careful arrangement of art works, which contain their own contexts and histories but are also related to one another and the viewer.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events including: Artists video screenings, talks and workshops. For a full list of programmed events please check:
