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.

Techne

Artists: Roxana Allison, Tyrone Anderson, Mario Popham

Preview: 21st July 2018
Exhibition until: 12th August 2018
Open Thursday – Sunday 11am – 5pm

An exhibition of recent work by the photographic technicians at The University of Bolton.
The word ‘techne’ is the term given by ancient Greeks to the practice of making and doing, as opposed to ‘episteme’ which is related to knowing. In their guise as technicians, it is the making and doing and the promotion of craft and skill that defines their role. These skills that have been honed over years are regularly put into the service of their own creative concerns. This exhibition showcases their personal photographic
endeavours that are wide-ranging and ambitious in scope.

Bankley member Roxana Allison will be showcasing part of her series Operation Jurassic. A photographic collaboration between brother and sister Pablo and Roxana Allison, Operation Jurassic explores the emotional journey leading up to and after Pablo’s imprisonment, revealing personal moments and emotions. The compilation of legal documentation, paperwork, letters, drawings, diaries and photographs provide the viewer with an intimate approach of the process whilst reflecting on issues of freedom of
expression and the criminal justice system in the United Kingdom.

eo:studios is an artist-led, not-for-profit organisation based in Bolton, founded to aid the development of creative practitioners.
