The Bluecoat, Liverpool
Known as Liverpool’s centre for contemporary arts, the Bluecoat showcases talent across the visual art, music, dance, live art and literature. The Bluecoat boasts a rich history; it hosted the first Post Impressionist exhibition in 1911, including works by Picasso, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Matisse and Gauguin – it is, nevertheless, an institution facing forwards. Many artists have presented their work here at an early stage in their career, including several, for instance, who went on to win the Turner Prize. Bluecoat provides a creative hub for people to meet, talk, work, perform, question, create, craft, display and enjoy themselves.
