Leo Fitzmaurice: Between You and Me and Everything Else

3 September 2018 by Felicity

Portraits from National Museums Liverpool’s collection have been brought out of storage for the exhibition. Shown here in the conservation studio.

Here at the Walker, we’ve been working on something exciting with the Wirral-based artist, Leo Fitzmaurice…

Leo will create an assembly of portraits at the Gallery as part of a new exhibition, which asks us to look twice at what might, at first, seem familiar. Leo Fitzmaurice: Between You and Me and Everything Else (29 September 2018 to 17 March 2019) will include artworks from the Arts Council Collection and National Museums Liverpool’s own collection.

More than 30 portraits by artists including Frank Auerbach, David Bomberg, Milena Dragicevic, Ken Kiff, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky and Philip Sutton will feature in the exhibition, which takes place in Room 9 at the Gallery. Read more…

We’ve just announced our upcoming exhibition programme for the next 12 months. Highlights for early 2019 include a major showcase of work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh as well as a display of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci from the Royal Collection Trust.

The John Moores Painting Prize will take centre stage in summer 2018, celebrating 60 years of the Prize. It opens in line with an exhibition of early works by Sean Scully, who is a former John Moores prize winner. The exhibitions run from 14 July, coinciding with the opening of Liverpool Biennial 2018.

We’ll continue to work with contemporary artists as part of the Arts Council Collection’s National Partners Programme and will present works selected by Leo Fitzmaurice from our own collection as well as the Arts Council Collection in a new display opening on 29 September 2018. Read more…
