Liverpool Biennial 2010: ‘Touched’ presented the work of over 60 artists. 'Touch' is the mark of truth, the most intimate gesture and the greatest commitment. To touch or be touched is the performance of truth, when incredulity is displaced and the world condenses into a moment of all-enveloping realisation, changing everything.

Touch arrives unexpectedly, locating our most intimate moments in space and time through every sense – emotionally and consciously. To live by these moments where strength and vulnerability conjoin in their terror and beauty is a commitment – a commitment to oneself and to the world that is both personal and political.
