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.

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.

NEW ART BLUECOAT
Apr 13 - Jun 23, 2019
Throughout 2019, the Vide space is hosting exhibitions about Bluecoat’s long history as an arts centre, the first in the UK. Formalised in 1927 with the establishment of Bluecoat Society of Arts, this followed two decades of activities organised by a group of artists, the Sandon Studios Society, who had moved into the building in 1907.

A female figure recurs in her work, representing shared histories between women – particularly women of colour – and building on personal histories of migration.

COOKING SECTIONS:THE EMPIRE REMAINS SHOP—BIRMINGHAM FRANCHISE
Jun 14 - Sep 28, 2019
Private view Fri Jun 14 6pm - 8pm
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.

RESIST: BE MODERN (AGAIN)
May 25 - Aug 17, 2019
Curated by Alice Maude-Roxby and Stefanie Seibold, Resist: be modern (again) explores the practices of women artists, designers and writers of the 1920s and 30s through the work of contemporary artists. These early pioneering women were important groundbreakers for their time, many of their ideas are reverberating until today. Their battles against social conventions and aesthetic dogmas paved the way for today’s understanding of an expanded field of art, as well as for contemporary personal freedoms. Using the lens of contemporary art, theory and design, the exhibition highlights the importance and influence of these long-lost early avant-garde practices into the present.
