Police arrive on Campus following Library theft

The University of Liverpool Library has  tweeted warning students of valuables going missing in the library. As students, we are notorious for leaving our desks filled with belongings to have casual chats in the downstairs foyer, to pop to the nearest Tesco for lunch, or even leaving the area entirely to attend a lecture or seminar. During this busy time filled with looming deadlines and revision, belongings are bound to be left unattended for short periods of time, and it looks as if certain student(s) have taken advantage of this, as a laptop has allegedly gone missing. Students were...

ARTIST ROOMS: Roy Lichtenstein in Focus Review

As someone who knew little about Lichtenstein’s work before visiting TATE Liverpool’s exhibition, I strongly recommend you pay it a visit. Some of his work is probably familiar to you, if not directly then through its many appropriations in pop culture and advertisements. Iconic cartoon-style explosions and exaggerated comic-strip-style images can be seen everywhere. The bold, eye-catching colours and shapes in his work are hard to miss… it’s no wonder advertisers make such use of it! This is what struck me first when visiting the exhibition: how bright and exciting each of Lichtenstein’s images were. Presented in a spacious white room with grey...
