Exhibition: Global Studio, The Bluecoat, Liverpool, April 9 – June 20 2010
The latest offering from the Bluecoat will see artists from Liverpool to Linz collaborating on Global Studio.
More than 30 artists have been working on proposals resulting in five different yet connected displays by artists from Austria, France, Germany, Japan, Pakistan and Merseyside working in printmaking, video, painting and installation.
"Visitors to the Bluecoat galleries will enjoy a diversity of themes, ideas and approaches in the exhibition that highlights the significant work that Liverpool-based artists are doing outside of the city," said exhibitions curator Sara-Jayne Parsons.

"Simultaneously, they will have an opportunity to witness artists at work. Some of the galleries will become working studios and as such a place to experiment. Creative processes that usually happen behind closed studio doors will be revealed."
Works on display will include pieces from artists highlighting the impact of globalism in contemporary making and collectives from Liverpool and Linz will be looking into the legacy of Liverpool as Capital of Culture and questioning what impact it had on local artists.
