Billboards SN3343/01-04, Leece Street, Liverpool, UK, 10-23 October 2007

DADOPTION is a group exhibition in the form of a collaborative collage stretching over four 20x10ft billboards on a busy street in Liverpool City Centre. DADOPTION evolved from four months of image dialogues between artists, citizens and creative workers across the globe with fatherhood, football and adoption on their minds. Produced by Alan Dunn in collaboration with Dmitry Gutov, Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901), Cristian Roldan, Rafael Alvez, Leah Alconcel, Heidi & Zak, Guy Ben-Ner and Alex Dempster.
