Celebrating 10 years of commissioning ambitious and challenging new work by leading international artists, the 5th edition of Liverpool Biennial, ‘MADE UP’, was an exploration of the power of the artistic imagination.

‘MADE UP’ saw imagination as the dynamo of art. At the heart of this exhibition’s broad ranging exploration of ‘making things up’ (which includes utopias and dystopias, narrative fiction, fantasy, myths, lies, prophesies, subversion and spectacle) was the emotional charge which powers the artistic imagination.
