Bluecoat: Public View exhibition launch
Times: 18:00 - 23:00
Friday 3 February. Gallery 6 – 9pm. Bar and DJ 6 – 11
Exhibition continues until Sunday 23 April. Open Daily, Free Entry.
Join us for the launch of Public View and take a first look at the exhibition, enjoy music in our bar until late and help us celebrate 300 years of the Bluecoat building.
Curated by Bluecoat’s Artistic Director Bryan Biggs, Public View features work from over 100 artists who have previously exhibited at Bluecoat, including including John Akomfrah, Sonia Boyce, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Jeremy Deller, Adrian Henri, Lubaina Himid, John Latham, Mark Leckey, Elizabeth Magill, Yoko Ono, Tony Oursler, Yinka Shonibare and Imogen Stidworthy. The exhibition aims to reflect something of Bluecoat’s curatorial distinctiveness and the breadth of artists we have supported over this period.
Public View will include paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and videos, many of them previously presented by Bluecoat, some re-made especially for the show, and others completely new.
Free, drop in.
