Art of Football

Coinciding with the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Art Of Football is a celebration of the creative culture and social fabric which underpins the beautiful game. A festival of the culture surrounding football, to coincide with the greatest football festival in the world.

From the ritualistic experience of fandom to the tapestries and soundtracks of the terraces, each facet of the modern human condition can be explored through the prism of the globe’s most beloved sport.

Art Of Football is commissioned by Culture Liverpool and curated by Bido Lito! Magazine in collaboration with Foto Octo and Laces Out!.
