BEYOND THE FATIGUED EYE
Jan 23 - Mar 30, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Arnolfini’s galleries will largely break with the convention of presenting an unchanging exhibition of visual art, providing instead a space for artists’ to develop work during residencies, exploring the boundaries between audience and performer through the presentation of work-in-progress, with a focus on participation. Appropriating a phrase from Neagu’s 1969 Palpable Art Manifesto, Beyond the Fatigued Eye hints at the need to consider the potential of art to operate beyond the presentation of a finished, aesthetic experience, asking how art can help us to respond to challenges, whether technological or societal, that threaten culture’s relevance?

PERFORMANCE ARCHIVE DISPLAY

Jan 28 - Apr 9, 2017
This exhibition explores the central role of art at Bluecoat, which started over a century ago, through key personalities, exhibitions and organisations that found a home here, contributing to the unique history of the UK’s oldest arts centre. This is the first in a year-long series of heritage exhibitions that tell the building’s 300-year story, including its origins in 18th century philanthropy, a school for architects, home for radical exhibitions and bohemian cabaret, and the developmentof an artistic community.

PUBLIC VIEW
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.

Mar 4 - Jun 11, 2017
Over many years, Dan Hays has explored the relationship between the intangible and instantaneous realm of the digital image, and the tactile and time-consuming medium of painting. Using a variety of painting techniques, the pixelated nature of the screen image when seen close-up has been recreated and extended through layering, and is often exaggerated to the point of recognition.
