Press Corps is the official press corps of the Liverpool Biennial
of Contemporary Art, September 18th-November 28th 2004, providing
a full access, information and hospitality service for journalists
as well as at Static Gallery.
The Liverpool Biennial represents the UK's biggest contemporary
art event, in the city which is shortly to become European Capital
of Culture. Due to these exceptional circumstances Press Corps decided
to leave nothing to chance, providing a comprehensive range of facilities
to support quality writing.
Press Corps provides access to all exhibitions, launch events and
press conference information so that optimal critical engagement
with the Biennial can occur. Press Corps assists with planning of
visits by national and international journalists and broadcasters.
Once in the city, Press Corps provides a meeting and orientation
service for press, as well as a complimentary night in Liverpool's
famous Adelphi Hotel.
Whilst in the city, members of the press can take advantage of
Press Corp's communication facilities including wireless internet
access, fax, photocopier and access to reviews as they emerge.
Press Corps also provides a central, comfortable social and rest
area at the host venue Static Gallery, providing complimentary refreshments
and storage facilities. These facilities are available to all who
register through Press Corps and on presentation of the Press Corps
badge. Facilities are available 10-6 Monday to Saturday.
To access the benefits of Press Corps we suggest you register early
via the web-site
or by presenting your credentials in person at Static, 23 Roscoe
Lane, Liverpool, L1 9JD.
The public may view the exceptional space, but priority is given
to maintaining the comfort of, and preserving the privacy of the
press when working.
In addition to supporting and tracking features about the Biennial
in the press, Press Corps is commissioning a range of texts by respected
and emerging writers. New press releases, features and reviews will
be available at the host venue for the sole use by the press, and
will be also available online at http://www.presscorps.org.uk/critical.htm
