Liverpool is an extraordinary city and one far better suited to hosting citywide events than its bigger sibling, London, in the south. For a start it's easily navigable on foot. Secondly, it has heaps of venues, old and new, which give a very rounded sense of the city - its character, history and contemporary culture. Liverpool is also one of Britain's last cities notable for the pride it takes in all that it does. For each of these reasons Liverpool's fifth art biennial, which opened in September and continues until the end of November, in many ways eclipsed both London Fashion Week and the London Design Festival - both on at the same time and chaotic in comparison.
The pictures above shows an installation by artist Richard Wilson, titled 'Turning the Place Over'.
