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.

SERENA KORDA: UNDER THE ROSE
Mar 13 - Jul 28, 2019
Under the Rose is a new sound installation made for Speke Hall’s courtyard, inspired by the acoustics of secrecy.

SHEZAD DAWOOD : LEVIATHAN
Jul 6 - Oct 13, 2019
Shezad Dawood’s epic film series Leviathan comes to Bluecoat this summer as part of a season examining society and migration. Presented alongside paintings, resin sculpture, and woven textiles, Leviathan follows migratory patterns between Europe and Africa. The works combine marine biology, climate change, political systems and mental health to show how human activity and marine ecologies are intertwined.

GRACE NDIRITU : THE ARK
Jul 6 - Oct 13, 2019
Following exhibitions in 2010 and 2017, Ndiritu returns to Bluecoat with a new exhibition drawing on her 2017 research and live art project, The Ark: Center For Interdisciplinary Experimentation which took place at Les Laboratories Aubervilliers, Paris. Scientists, artists, gardeners, economists, a chef and spiritual workers joined the artist for an intensive, intimate 10-day experience focusing on the role of art, science, spirituality and politics. The resulting exhibition features archival material, costumes, signs and research materials.

Click to enlargeLOIS WALPOLE : WEAVING GHOSTS
May 24 - Sep 8, 2019
Lois Walpole: Weaving Ghosts is an exhibition that focuses on ghost gear*, basketry skills and sustainability. The work of Lois Walpole is intrinsically linked to the materials used to create it, and tells a powerful story of our attitude to the environment, exploring the artist’s personal history to express universal issues. Using ancient and almost forgotten basketry techniques, Walpole’s cheerful, colourful vessels belie a deeper truth and stand as silent testaments to the problems facing our planet.

RICHARD CLARE : YOU LEFT THE DOOR WIDE OPEN ALL NIGHT
May 24 - Sep 8, 2019
You Left the Door Wide Open All Night represents a small selection of the work Richard Clare has produced since settling in Letchworth in 2010. Previously an abstract painter while living in Barcelona, Clare’s recent work has become more figurative, developing a cast of characters and motifs that inhabit the artist’s ‘other world’, a psychologically skewed universe that, although dreamlike, they are given a realness and authenticity through expressive and intuitive mark-making.

Jun 17 - Aug 11, 2019
Exhibition hang at AUB curated by William Hernandez Abreu.
A Hayward Touring Exhibition from Southbank Centre, London
Eduardo Paolozzi: General Dynamic F.U.N. presents 50 screenprints and photolithographs by the pioneer of Pop Art, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005).
Created between 1965 and 1970, Paolozzi’s canny alchemy is vividly apparent in General Dynamic F.U.N. The series illustrates how the self-styled ‘Wizard in Toytown’ employed the technologies of mass-reproduction to gorge on its idols – the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood in the 1960s.

Jun 14 - Sep 28, 2019
Building on a previous attempt to open an Empire Shop in Birmingham in January 1931, the first franchise of The Empire Remains Shop opens in Junctions Works, the future home of Grand Union in the historical Canal & River Trust Office grade-II listed building in Birmingham, in the heart of the post-post-industrial landscape of Digbeth. Conceived for the renovation period of the building, the Empire Remains Shop will take over the facade and windows to host a range of new commissions and existing works that employ food as a tool to assemble new sites and geographies, while exploring origins, destinations and exchanges across the present and future of our postcolonial planet. Visitors to The Empire Remains Shop—Birmingham can take part in the rolling programme of visual and sound installations facing Fazeley Street, the railway and the canal. The series of works aim to uncover Birmingham’s past and present relationship to Empire through culinary, chemical, cultural and agricultural extractions, inventions and interventions, while exploring other possible futures.
