Upcoming Art Exhibitions in Liverpool
2018 is a special year for Liverpool - ten years since Capital of Culture and the city is still moving from strength to strength. Now that Spring has officially broken, we're feeling inspired to get out and about in our city.
Here's our pick of some of the many art exhibitions that are gracing our city this Spring.

Snapshot to WeChat: A Migration of Identity at Open Eye Gallery
Three billion images are shared on social media across the world each day, and this 'everyday photography' is explored in Snapshot to WeChat.

Focussing on photographs taken by ordinary people in China, this exhibition considers how the act of documenting day-to-day life shapes our identity.

States of Play: Roleplay Reality at FACT Liverpool
Exploring the world of Internet gaming, States of Play: Roleplay Reality considers how roleplay (found in a lot of video games) reflects and shapes personal realities. With new technologies in augmented and virtual reality expanding the realms of gaming, can video game reality move beyond real-world power structures? Featuring both artworks and well known industry games, this exhibition explores how the roles we play expose our personal truths, and what the consequences of that might be.
