The University of Liverpool are supporting a major exhibition on 'Surrealism in Egypt: Art et Liberté 1938 – 1948' as part of the university's partnership with Tate Liverpool. The exhibition offers an insight into how surrealism developed outside Europe.

For this partnership, Egyptology is being celebrated in an innovative way by developing the university's own unique exhibitions, activities and events, including behind the scenes insight into curation, gallery tours and art history.

In conjunction with the exhibition, and forming part of this year’s Tate Exchange project, students have had the opportunity to train with Tate Liverpool curators, giving them the skills to lead gallery tours of the exhibition.

Join us for a unique, student-led tour

Visitors are invited to join students on these tours, for a unique insight into this important collection. Expect students to bring their own personal and creative elements to the tour, for a one-off experience.

The next tours are on Wednesday 21 February, Wednesday 7 March and Wednesday 14 March from 4pm. Check the Tate Liverpool website for more details
