Alexander MacGregor supports established and fledgling arts groups across the region and has designed and produced this independents Biennal guide for 2010.

welcome The Independents is one of the largest and most exciting contemporary visual arts festivals in the UK, with an exhibitions programme that runs alongside the Liverpool Biennial. This year the Independents will showcase more than 500 local, national and international artists in 128 events at over 60 venues across Liverpool, Merseyside and the Wirral. The Independents is an open access contemporary art event that showcases young blood and emerging new talent alongside established international artists. These artists create new work specifically for the Independents Festival, which always throws up unexpected and genuine surprises in extraordinary and often unusual venues. This year, in a climate of stringent public finances and without its traditional funding support, the Independents thrives against all odds, thanks to participating artists and galleries who have rallied to back the Festival financially because they understand the importance, the potential and the value that the Independents has for them. Their support is something to be celebrated. I hope you find the Independents enjoyable, stimulating and compelling.
