Exhibition Research Lab is delighted to host the first UK exhibition of work by the 2020 & 2022 winners of the John Moores Painting Prize China.

As part of their prize, the artists have undertaken a residency programme in the studio spaces of Liverpool School of Art and Design over the summer of 2023. Some of the work on display has been created in response to their experiences in Liverpool during the residency programme, and is being shown to the public for the first time.

Their prize-winning works will be on display at the Walker Art Gallery alongside the 2023 John Moores Painting Prize UK, which runs Sep 16, 2023 – Feb 25, 2024.

The artists will be present at the public opening of the John Moores Painting Prize UK exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery on September 16 for an informal Q&A session about their work.

*Please note, our events and projects are always open to all. However, our Quiet Preview is for visitors of all ages who require reduced volume and reduced numbers of other visitors compared to our Public Preview. As such, we may stagger entry for visitors to ensure the gallery doesn’t become too crowded at any given time.

If you have any other access requirements, then please contact us and we will do our best to facilitate them.
