Curated by Bluecoat Artistic Director Bryan Biggs, the exhibition Public View brings together works by 100 artists who have previously exhibited at Bluecoat. From the Post-Impressionists in 1911 to showcases of the next Generation of artists like the recent Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Bluecoat has developed a reputation as an important regional venue for new art. For over a century the gallery has helped launch many artists’ careers, initiated and hosted significant UK and international touring exhibitions, and been at the forefront of new developments in the visual arts. The exhibition aims to reflect Bluecoat’s curatorial interests and distinctiveness over this period. Common Culture are exhibiting ‘Artists Tips (number 10), a unique print conflating the typographic presentation of 1970s conceptual art with instructional artistic advice.
