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, Sonia Boyce, Jeremy Deller, John Latham, Mark Leckey, Elizabeth Magill, Yoko Ono and Yinka Shonibare. There is a wide range of work included – paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, videos – many of them previously exhibited in the gallery, some re-made especially for the show, and others completely new. This is but a small sample of the many hundreds of artists who have shown here. Find out more about the ‘Public View’ exhibition from the Bluecoat’s website.
