An Imagined Museum: works from the Pompidou, Tate and MMK collections is to open at Tate Liverpool on November 20.

The exhibition will feature important works from all three museums and will tour between each through 2016.

It will include works from Marchel Duchamp, Andy Warhol and Rachel Whiteread.

The Tate explain: “The exhibition draws on Ray Bradbury’s 1953 sci-fi novel Fahrenheit 451, a narrating of a distant future in which works of literature are banished and the only way to save them is to learn them by heart.

An Imagined Museum invites audiences into a fictional scenario in which the exhibited artworks are about to vanish.

“In the same way that Bradbury’s characters memorise books to ensure their future preservation, An Imagined Museum asks visitors to memorise its artworks.”
