Every two years Liverpool hosts the UK's largest international contemporary arts festival.

This autumn, following the influx of Olympics visitors to Britain, the ten-week festival explores the theme of hospitality under the heading ‘The Unexpected Guest’.

Sixty established and emerging artists from around the world will place works in unusual locations around the city, including the iconic Cunard Building. A parallel show, City States, presents the work of over 60 artists from seven countries, exploring the dynamics between cities and states.
