Deaf School: The Art School Dance Goes On Forever

  • Sat, 19 Oct 2013 - Fri, 15 Nov 2013
  • 10.00 AM - 5.00 PM
  • Location: Liverpool John Moores University School of Art & Design
  • Tickets: Free

 At Liverpool John Moores University School of Art & Design, Liverpool Art & Design Academy, Duckinfield Street, Off Brownlow Hill, Liverpool, L3 5YD
 

This exhibition celebrates 40 years since archetypal art school band, Deaf School, formed at Liverpool College of Art. Melody Maker rock/pop/folk contest winners and Warner Brothers recording artists, they became one of the most entertaining and visually distinctive outfits of the mid 1970s live circuit and an influence on Liverpool's musical rennaissance around legendary Eric's club.  Curated by the Bluecoat’s Artistic Director Bryan Biggs, the exhibition highlights the art/pop music crossover and the fertile art school environment from which Deaf School sprang. It will include original art works by band members including Tim Whittaker, Sam Davis and Roy Holt, posters, record sleeves, rarely seen films and photos.
