Responding to the two histories of Bluecoat – school and gallery – this group exhibition explores alternative twentieth century histories of creative education and their resonance today. Artists have been invited to upturn the conventions of the gallery with young visitors as their primary audience. Artists include Simon & Tom Bloor who, inspired by Kurt Rowland’s ‘Looking and seeing’ series, will turn the window gallery into a studio space while Liverpool based artist Emily Speed will make a number of playful architectural interventions. The exhibition also includes artist Aurelian Froment and Liverpool based typographer Mark Simmonds, and will feature collaboratively produced work by Bluecoat’s long running children’s participation project, Out of the Blue.
