Join Tate Liverpool and Liverpool Biennial for the launch of Liverpool Mountain, a major new public artwork by internationally renowned artist Ugo Rondinone.
The 10-metre high sculpture will be situated on Liverpool’s historic waterfront and consists of vertically-stacked rocks painted in bright fluorescent colours. Reminiscent both of ancient totems and of land art, Liverpool Mountain is inspired by naturally occurring Hoodoos – spires or pyramids of rock – and the art of meditative rock balancing.
The launch will take place at Mermaid Courtyard by Tate Liverpool, Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, L3 4BB.
Part of the Liverpool 2018 programme, the project marks the 10th anniversary of Liverpool European Capital of Culture, the 20th anniversary of Liverpool Biennial and the 30th anniversary of Tate Liverpool.
