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.

Bluecoat’s gallery is transformed into a sonic chamber for collective singing in this ground-breaking new sound installation by Emma Smith, based on the music of social communication. Euphonia is an interactive sound work illustrating how we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone when we engage in friendly interactions - such as chitchat with friends. Smith will draw from sounds created by the many people who visit Bluecoat on a daily basis –parents and babies, visitors to the café and the choirs and groups who rehearse there in the evenings.
