This is Anfield? Well yes but…
It’s not about football it’s art. OK, well it is about football in a way. In the art of Christine Physick, now on display in the Meeting House Café, in the Quaker Meeting House in School Lane, Liverpool. Just next to The Bluecoat and Radio Merseyside.
Art you can take part in creating. This Saturday, 15th November.If you’ve been reading this blog for a while now, you’ll know that the Meeting House is currently one of my favourite places in Liverpool. Not just for its café, the wonderful joint operation with Blackburne House, but for the people and the place as a whole. Peaceful, dignified and welcoming to all.
So a great place for an exhibition which is a serious and dignified debate in itself. Containing depictions of the debates so many of us have witnessed and even lived through this past decade and more, as Anfield has struggled so hard with its future.
Most of the words that follow are from the artist’s own description of her work and the reason for its existence. Interspersed with some of my own pictures from Anfield over the years.
“Football as the national game inspires both positive and negative emotions in equal measure. Those who follow the game tend to support a particular club for life: football helps to shape their identity but in return it demands tremendous loyalty.
Exhibition here, at the Quaker Meeting House.
