Everybody Razzle Dazzle
Date(s): Apr 2, 2015 – Dec 1, 2016
Location: Tate Liverpool, Albert Dock, Liverpool, Liverpool, Merseyside L3, UK
Take a ride on a ‘dazzling’ new artwork by the Godfather of British pop art Sir Peter Blake. Liverpool Biennial, 14–18 NOW WW1 Centenary Art Commissions and Tate Liverpool have co-commissioned one of the major figures of British pop art, Sir Peter Blake, to ‘dazzle’ a Mersey Ferry in partnership with Merseytravel and National Museums Liverpool (Merseyside Maritime Museum).
Everybody Razzle Dazzle will see Peter Blake transform Snowdrop – an active Mersey Ferry – with one of his iconic, colourful designs into a fully working Dazzle Ferry.
Step aboard a moving artwork! Travelling on Snowdrop you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the history of dazzle – a painting technique employed to camouflage British ships – and the role that Liverpool’s much loved Mersey Ferries took in the First World War in a special on-board display.Event Site
