Feb 4 - Apr 23, 2017
Curated by Bluecoat Artistic Director Bryan Biggs, the exhibition Public View brings together works by 100 artists who have previously exhibited at Bluecoat. The exhibition will feature work from a number of high profile artists including John Akomfrah, Jeremy Deller, John Latham, Mark Leckey, Elizabeth Magill, Yoko Ono and Yinka Shonibare. This is but a small sample of the many hundreds of artists who have shown here. However, it aims to reflect something of Bluecoat’s curatorial interests and distinctiveness over this period.

LARISSA SANSOUR: IN THE FUTURE, THEY ATE FROM THE FINEST PORCELAIN
May 6 - Jun 24, 2017
Private view Fri May 5 5:30pm - 9pm
In the Future They Ate From the Finest Porcelain resides in the cross-section between sci-fi, archaeology and politics. Combining live motion and CGI, the film explores the role of myth for history, fact and national identity. A narrative resistance group makes underground deposits of elaborate porcelain - suggested to belong to an entirely fictional civilisation. Their aim is to influence history and support future claims to their vanishing lands. Once unearthed, this tableware will prove the existence of this counterfeit people. By implementing a myth of its own, their work becomes a historical intervention - de facto creating a nation.
