Turner Prize-winning Lubaina Himid premieres her new artwork series ‘Random Coincidence’ at Liverpool Central Library from today (23 November) until 7 December.

EXHIBITION | Tate’s major Fernand Léger exhibition arrives
The first major UK exhibition in 30 years by renowned modern artist Fernand Léger (1881-1955) opens at Tate Liverpool today (23 November).
The ticketed ‘New Times, New Pleasures’ display, which runs until 17 March 2019, features work through a range of mediums as it celebrates Legér’s aim to make art part of everyday life.
EVENT | Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond begin building 34,592-brick pyramid
KLF musicians Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond, known for their provocative stunts, will begin building ‘The People’s Pyramid’ at Toxteth Town Hall today (23 November) with bricks containing people’s ashes.
Toxteth residents can attend the first annual Toxteth Day of the Dead by the duo, who are working on the project under the name K2 Plant Hire Ltd, for free but other members of the public must present a supermarket shopping trolley – non-returnable. Attendees can purchase bricks for their own ‘MuMufication’, and other ‘occurances’ could take place.
