LIVERPOOL.- The UK’s most anarchic and exciting art fair takes the show on the road, and visits Liverpool for the first time as part of the opening weekend of the Liverpool Biennial on 5th July.
 
By linking up with this international arts extravaganza, the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair will be bringing some new and exciting artists to the city as well as handpicking a selection of Liverpool’s finest artists to join the frivolity, fabulous entertainment, artisan food and high end art bargains.

Artists at the Liverpool Fair will include Sir Peter Blake, Gavin Turk, James Unsworth, Julia Vogl, Marty Thornton, Wilma ‘Surfmama’ Johnson, Swifty, Cultivate, Scrawl Collective, Carolyn Gowdy, Alice Herrick, Jeffrey Disaster, Maria Teresa Gavazzi, Nina Fowler, the Juncture. The Fair will also be championing Liverpool based artists including Emily Speed, Rose Smith, Sam Venables, Kevin Hunt, The Royal Standard featuring Rob Chavasse, Sam Smith and Joey Holder, Dave Evans, Francis Disley, Rachel Marcroft, Lil Atkinson, Double Negative, Hunt and Darton, Home Baked, Theodore Vass, Madeleine Hall and more.
 
The Vauxhall Art Cargo - a specially customised Vauxhall Vivaro van packed full of art and the stuff to make it at each venue – will offer visitors the chance to get stuck in to the process as well as the purchase of art!  The event will also feature the Go-Forth Plinths, a series of car and roof top commissions from Gavin Turk and the Vauxhall Ampera, Julia Vogl on the Vauxhall ADAM and Nina Saunders on the Vauxhall Insignia. There will also be a selection of classic Vauxhall motors with boots full of art including the Firenza, Ventora, Viva and PA Velox.

Taking a quintessentially British concept and turning it on its head, the Fair is famous for being the day the art world lets its hair down, coming together to fill the car park with English eccentricity, quirky ideas, incredible bargains, cool art, eclectic wares and madcap performances. There will be food and drinks available from Hunt & Darton Café who combine interactive performance with their service. It’s an art-buying frenzy from the moment the doors open offering people the chance to grab special just-for-the-day artworks. There’s something for every pocket with works typically on sale for between £10 to £1,000.
 
In June, the London edition of the Fair saw queues form around the block as people waited in anticipation to buy work directly from artists. Celebrity guests including Florence Welch, Lulu Guinness, Patsy Palmer, Harley Moon Kemp and Finlay Kemp all attended to pick up bargain artwork.

Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair founder and curator, Karen Ashton, commented, “Having established the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair as a dynamic and thrilling art marketplace as well as a thoroughly entertaining afternoon for all our art loving visitors in London, it made perfect sense to take our show on the road to engage with new audiences and new artists around the country – and we are delighted to be embraced by both the Liverpool Biennial and the Folkestone Triennial.”

Speaking about the upcoming event, Denis Chick, Director of Communications at Vauxhall Motors said, “We were keen to develop the event for 2014 and by taking the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair onto the road, even more art, entertainment, fun and British madness can roam the country.  The Art Cargo and the Go Forth Plinth - a fleet of Vauxhall cars with incredible artworks – will hit Liverpool and Folkestone.”
