Join FACT to celebrate the opening of Chila Kumari Singh Burman’s vibrant redesign of their gallery space.
The installation Merseyside British Empire will contain new commissions from the Bootle-born artist including an immersive Tuk Tuk; a kaleidoscope of colour, made up of layered collages, glitter and embellished motifs including Hindu deities, Bindis and tigers.
This new space will present work from FACT’s artists-in-residence, host artist-led events, and deliver hands-on workshops. It will be somewhere for artists to experiment and engage directly with the public.
With food and drink from iconic street food hang out Bundobust, this joyful gathering will be packed with tasty treats and musical celebrations, marking the start of a year long installation of Chila’s signature culture-clashing visuals, neons and sculptures at FACT.
Food from Bundobust will be served from 1-5pm. We’ll then move onto serving drinks only from 5-8pm at Riposo, an independent bar located inside FACT.
