Works shown at the 2016 Liverpool Biennial are going on the road as part of a special touring initiative, bringing top-notch pieces by artists such as Mark Leckey and Betty Woodman to venues such as the Cooper Gallery in Barnsley and Bury Art Museum. A major biennial piece, Dogsy Ma Bone by the UK artist Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, proved popular (Chetwynd worked with 78 young people in Liverpool to create the film for children inspired by the 1936 musical A Song A Day and Bertolt Brecht’s satirical masterpiece Threepenny Opera, 1928). This canine caper is due to be screened at Touchstones Rochdale on 11 March when the artist and Dogsy cast will also put on a special performance. Woof, woof.
