AN EXCLUSIVE SPACE TO SHOWCASE LOCAL TALENT
The local artists showcase was a big hit at last year’s event, so we decided to once again curate a selection of artists to be part of our festival, in the exclusive The Shed space at the Baltic Creative building on Jamaica street (entrance via the 92 Degrees cafe).
Like last year, we’ll have the Liverpool Psychedelic Society providing a very special atmosphere and exhibiting photos, posters and the Dreamachine.
WHERE: The Shed, Baltic Creative / 92 Degrees building (49 Jamaica St, Liverpool L1 0AH)
WHEN: from 10am-5pm
AT THE EXHIBITION:
THE MARTY ARTS
Besides being a regular Coffee and Turntables DJ guest, and hosting his own radio show on SVARA radio (‘Inside the Belly of the Beats’) our friend Marty is also an artist, taking inspiration from hip-hop and street art.
Lo Tierney is a queer, autistic artist based in Liverpool, making striking, colourful and often engaged work with an ipad. Lo also does portraits in the exhibition, if you want to be turned into art, on the spot.
Peter is an autistic artist based in Liverpool, whose first-ever art exhibition was at Balticfest last year. We are pleased to have him back for a second time.
We only got to know Annabel’s work after we closed the details for the first Balticfest last year, so we unfortunately couldn’t have her then, but now we’re happy to showcase her beautiful and very psychedelic work.
AMY OF DARKNESS
Amy is another friend of ours who’s guested as a DJ for Coffee and Turntables before (and will do again at this year’s Balticfest). She’s also a talented artist who designed exclusive, limited-edition badges for us. She’ll showcase her original, colourful work inspired by horror and sci-fi movies.
LIVERPOOL PSYCHEDELIC SOCIETY
Like last year, the Liverpool Psychedelic Society will be showcasing posters and photos from previous events, besides providing some atmospheric lights.
