World-renowned artist collective Artists Anonymous are offering local businesses a unique chance to promote themselves at this year’s Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art.

The Biennial attracts over 400,000 visitors, many of whom are visiting the city for the first time, and with Liverpool as incumbent European Capital of Culture, the number is set to increase this year.

Artists Anonymous’ exhibition, Communication and Association, is to be held at an impressive converted warehouse on Greenland Street, owned by the Biennial founders A Foundation. The building will also play host to the Biennial opening party and the public talks programme, as well as several high profile exhibitions. Communication and Association will contain a number of TV screens upon which local businesses are being offered the opportunity to advertise their products and services.

As part of Liverpool Chamber of Commerce’s initiative to promote Liverpool based companies and organisations through arts sponsorship during 2008 and beyond, your promotional video will be a central part of the impressive installation in A Foundation’s amazing 730m2 Furnace exhibition space.

Liverpool has a proud history of cultural philanthropy, from Lord Leverhulme, to Sir Henry Tate to the Moores family. The city’s current status as European Capital of Culture makes 2008 the perfect time to join this famous lineage. Artists Anonymous bring with them an impressive roll call of previous supporters including Bacardi, Blackberry, Deutsche Bank, Pioneer, Red Bull, Samsung, and Vanity Fair. Why not add your name to the list?

For a small sponsorship commitment of £500 or £1000, your company, through its video advert, will become part of what will be an exciting and unique public forum. From the opening party on the 19th September and for the following ten weeks of the Biennial, your video will be shown over five hundred times.

Communication and Association is also supported by Arts Council England, The Contemporary Art Society and Goethe Institute London

For £500 your Company’s video will be included in this impressive exhibition.
For £1000 a double length or twin video presentation will be included plus the following benefits:

  • Banner/board on display
  • Inclusion in publicity material and press releases

Spaces are limited and time is short so contact A Foundation as soon as possible to obtain more details and secure your company’s place in this high profile cultural event.

Please contact James Hutchinson at jamesh@afoundation.org.uk or 0151 706 0600 for more details.
