Art in the Carpark - Liverpool

10th - 17th Sept 2008: Art in the Car Park was a diverse group show in response to the CCP Car Park, Liverpool. The result was a body of new artwork that weaves into the social, economic, political, historical and geographical situation of the site and the city at large.

In the 80s, CCP Car Park, based in the heart of Liverpool, housed the offices of a car-sales business. After it was abandoned, it remained dormant in the portfolio of property developers until its rehabilitation by The Art Organisation (TAO) this year. TAO respond to the unique situation of a city in regeneration, negotiating the use of empty buildings for use as rich and compelling temporary space for artists and art.
