This Is It by Tether

On September 14 1814, the lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote what would become The Star Spangled Banner, the national anthem for the United States of America.

On September 14 2012, the artist collective Tether begin This Is It at The Royal Standard as part of the 7th Liverpool Biennial.

This Is It is part of Service Provider – a ten week programme at The Royal Standard exploring notions of both private and public hospitality within the context of a biennial structure.

Incorporating an installation, a parade float, a studio production and a series of public events, This Is It will attempt to capture and unpick the way we recognise, record and respond to history that has happened, is happening now and will happen in the future.

We’re hosting several events at The Royal Standard. See what’s on and book a space here.
