EMMA SMITH : EUPHONIA
Apr 27 - Jun 24, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Bluecoat’s gallery is transformed into a sonic chamber for collective singing in this ground-breaking new sound installation by Emma Smith, based on the music of social communication. Euphonia is an interactive sound work illustrating how we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone when we engage in friendly interactions - such as chitchat with friends. Smith will draw from sounds created by the many people who visit Bluecoat on a daily basis –parents and babies, visitors to the café and the choirs and groups who rehearse there in the evenings.

GILBERT (B.1943) & GEORGE (B.1942) are a Turner Prize-winning artist partnership, who have worked and shared their lives together for fifty years.

FRANK BRANGWYN’S PRINTS
Jun 5 - Sep 30, 2018
Frank Brangwyn (1867–1956) achieved early fame as a printmaker, and made over 1,000 original prints in his lifetime. His work is characterised by an intense sympathy for the daily labour of humanity. During the 1930s he gave away much of his work, and the Royal Pavilion & Museums holds one of the country’s largest collections of prints by Brangwyn. This display of etchings and lithographs from the Fine Art collection captures the range of his work.

May 12 - Aug 19, 2018
As a precursor to the British New Wave, Free Cinema marked a broader attitudinal shift in cinema and the arts against the exclusion of whole areas of life. Through a supporting programme of film and events, the exhibition will examine how the movement reflects the present challenges and methods of resistance employed by filmmakers and artists alike. This will include a temporary cinema space built into gallery one.
 
Gallery two will house an installation presentation of artist Ed Webb-Ingall's new community video project originally commissioned by Studio Voltaire. 'We Have Rather Been Invaded' looks at the impact and legacy of Section 28 and a historic ‘lesbian invasion’ of the BBC six o’clock news on May 23rd 1988. Comprised of archival material and interviews, the video examines the role of activism and our understanding of this piece of legislation 30 years on which prohibited local authorities in England and Wales from promoting homosexuality.

INHERITED PREMISES : RAMI GEORGE & TAKO TAAL
May 25 - Aug 3, 2018
Inherited Premises is a two-person show by artists Rami George and Tako Taal that seeks to articulate both personal and national narratives, situating itself between moments of political rupture and socio-familial histories.
 
Making reference to domesticity, language and ideas of nationhood, both artists explore their cultural and social lineages in relation to broader understandings of political traumas including conflict, war and imperialism.
 
As George moves towards a meditation on the spectre of Civil War within the Lebanese diaspora, Taal looks to linguistic boundaries and folklore in her understandings of matrilineal relations in Gambian culture.
 
Curated by Associate Curator Seán Elder.

Mar 24 - Jun 23, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Stretching through the Grundy’s two ground-floor gallery spaces, The Way Things Are is a sculpture, precisely and elegantly constructed in poplar wood that approximates to the form of a pier. Inspired by Victorian lithographs, contemporary architects’ drawings and the artist’s own recollections, The Way Things Are extends the artist’s interest in romantic longing; between desire and lived experience, between memory and fact.
