Event description

Description

Taking as a point of departure the seminal Ming dynasty text 'A Journey to the West' and its seeking of clarity and understanding, 'misty clouds scattered colours' is a three-day moving image project focusing on films by artists based in Asia and its diaspora. Taking place in the site of a small cinema, in a converted magistrates court in the heart of Liverpool, the project is presented by Edouard Malingue Gallery in collaboration with key art organisations across Liverpool and the North West. Composed of three different nights, each focusing on self/space/nation respectively, the project aims to systematically dispel notions of 'otherness' and the clichéd 'East to West' rhetoric.

The programme will last circa 120 mins including a 15 min interval and conclude with a panel discussion and Q&A session between invited artists, curators and critics. Bar will be open after till 9PM.
