Sep 8, 2018 - Jul 28, 2019
Bluecoat is delighted to be working with artist Serena Korda and Trust New Art, the National Trust’s programme connecting people to places through contemporary art.
Serena Korda works across performance, sound and sculpture to find and highlight ritual in the everyday, which is developed through encounters, conversations and the researching of abandoned histories.
Set in Speke Hall’s ancient woodlands and grounds, The Bell Tree draws on the hall’s hidden history. Korda reconsiders aspects of communion and tradition, including underexplored feminist narratives or ‘herstories’ and alternative histories of folklore and witchcraft. The public commission is at Speke Hall, with a smaller element installed in Bluecoat's garden.
Speke Hall is free to visit with a National Trust Membership.

BLUE ROOM AT TEN
Dec 1, 2018 - Mar 10, 2019
Bluecoat’s inclusive arts project celebrates ten years of creativity with an exhibition created for the anniversary. Inspired by images from the project’s extensive photographic archive, Blue Room artists have collaborated with Louise Waller and Alice Odgers from Baltic Clay to create a collection of ceramics which reference Bluecoat potter Julia Carter Preston (1926 - 2012), exploring her sgraffito technique. The exhibition also features screen prints created at Bluecoat Print Studio in collaboration with artist Becky Peach. Images and films about Blue Room and Julia Carter Preston are on our My Bluecoat archive website (mybluecoat.org.uk). Blue Room at Ten is part of DaDaFest International 2018.
