May 20, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Art in Revolution looks at how an exhibition held in Liverpool in 1911 fitted in with the city's wider history.

The show will be held at the Walker Art Gallery from June 24th to September 24th 2011 and offers visitors a real sense of what was happening at the time.

It is part of the Liverpool and the World Exhibition Series, as well as being listed in the City of Radicals programme, which celebrates 100 years of radicalism in the north-west destination.

The display being celebrated took place at the Bluecoat, which used to be known as the Liberty Buildings.

It happened at a time when there was great social unrest in Liverpool and this new show explores the context in which it appeared and how people reacted to it.

In a statement, the organisers remarked: "Featuring works by Van Gogh, Matisse, Gauguin and Signac, this exhibition brings together a mixture of works from the 1911 show and those similar in style and period."

The gallery is free to enter and is open from 10:00 to 17:00 BST. It is located a short walk from Liverpool Lime Street rail station.

Art enthusiasts find a huge variety of Liverpool hotels at, including the Adelphi Hotel Liverpool.
