Engaged: Behind Closed Doors at Liberty UK Festival


Engaged: Behind Closed Doors at Liberty UK Festival

By installing texts on a series of locks at The Exchange, LCB Depot and Manhattan 34, Yara El-Sherbini and The Khazi Collective seek to trigger conversations around the complexities of identity for Liberty UK Festival while bringing artworks to unusual locations like toilets.

With Leicester being the first of five European cities to showcase temporary art installations by international artists in toilets of local cafés or cultural venues in the city centre, the Accessible Art for All project wants to share messages about how we can live in a fairer and more inclusive society.

AAA. Accessible Art for All is a European initiative led by Explora (Rome) in partnership with ArtReach's Liberty UK Festival (Leicester), Altonale (Hamburg), Muzeiko (Sofia) and Regional Museum of Skåne (Kristianstad).
