SERENA KORDA : THE BELL TREE
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.

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.

Feb 9 - Jun 2, 2019
Private view Sat Feb 9 1pm - 6pm
Hayv Kahraman’s solo exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion will be the artist’s first in a UK public gallery. Her work explores her experience of living between Western and Middle Eastern cultures: having fled Iraq with her family aged 11 during the first Gulf War as part of the Kurdish mass exodus, the artist migrated to Europe and now lives in the USA. A female figure recurs in her work, representing shared histories between women – particularly women of colour – and building on personal histories of migration.

3-PHASE. MARK ESSEN : BUILD A WALL
Dec 8, 2018 - Feb 23, 2019
Mark Essen is responding with different communities and people he encounters at his studio, Modern Clay, to create a barrier that talks about lives, invisible walls constructed by governments, maintained by factions of society and the media, prohibiting them from being part of wider society. Mark is learning how to make bricks which he hopes will go on to become small scale brick factory which could be run as a social enterprise building company. These bricks will then be used to build a wall in Eastside Projects. Research for the project was supported by New Art Gallery Walsall’s ‘The Building as Material’ artist’s residency earlier in 2018. On 22 September ESP members took part in a Brick Making Workshop with Mark in Modern Clay.

This group exhibition brings together five national and international artists to investigate their playful approaches to colour.

Click to enlargeHAROON MIRZA : REALITY IS SOMEHOW WHAT WE EXPECT IT TO BE
Nov 30, 2018 - Feb 24, 2019
This is the most comprehensive exhibition of work by Haroon Mirza in the UK to date, filling Ikon’s exhibition spaces with moving imagery, sculptural installation and electronic sound. Involving smart sampling, sometimes through collaboration with other artists, Mirza’s practice overall is characterised by a knowing eclecticism and sheer physical impact. His (mis)understanding of the nature of human perception – of what and how we see and hear – is demonstrated and combined with countless possibilities of meaning, and so his aesthetic proposition is more to do with messages received than those transmitted, circumscribed by our constitutions, testing the limits of what we can experience and what we think we know.

MATTHEW KRISHANU : A MURDER OF CROWS
Jan 8 - Mar 10, 2019
Dozens of Matthew Krishanu’s painted crows will be displayed throughout Ikon’s neo-gothic premises. Always painted singly and never in flight they appear almost anthropomorphic on their twin legs, whether looking directly at the viewer or stepping away.
 
Mischievous, malevolent and sometimes comical, Krishanu’s birds are partly inspired by crows in art and literature; for example, ‘Crow’ by Ted Hughes, Edgar Allan Poe’s raven, or the mythical crows of trickster tales. Inspired by bird watching in England, they are also signifiers of Krishanu’s childhood in Bangladesh where crows were always close by, cawing in trees or pecking at rubbish dumps.
 
The exhibition coincides with Matthew Krishanu’s The Sun Never Sets at MAC Birmingham (12 January – 10 March 2019).
