Survey work from rising artists at Bluecoat
Rising stars in the art world are showcasing their work in a new exhibition at the Bluecoat.
Survey features the work of 15 artists from across the UK who were chosen from a long list of 72 nominated by established artists including Ryan Gander and Rachel Maclean.
The exhibition, which runs until June 23, covers a range of artistic disciplines including painting, ceramics, installations, film and performance, exploring a host of themes from familial and personal identity to the social and political.
Works include Lindsay Mendick’s I’ll Always Love You But I Don’t Always Like You, a display of raku fired ceramics made in collaboration with her close family, and Frank Wasser’s 02.11.20, a newspaper page detailing the assassination of Donald Trump.
Survey was originally commissioned by Jerwood Arts and is a partnership with Cardiff-based g39 and the Baltic at Gateshead. The show will travel to both venues during 2019.
Exhibiting artists are Chris Alton, Simeon Barclay, Hazel Brill, Flo Brooks, Emma Cousin, Joe Fletcher Orr, Tom Goddard, Ashley Holmes, Lindsey Mendick, Nicole Morris, Milly Peck, Anna Raczynski, Will Sheridan, Rae-Yen Song and Frank Wasser.
Bluecoat head of programme Adam Smythe said: “We’re delighted to bring this range of extraordinary work to Liverpool, and to be the host venue for the North West region.
“This exhibition is an exciting representation of the new work being made in the UK right now and indicates the degree and range of artistic talent out there.
“Bluecoat has a long history of supporting artists at all stages of their career, and this exhibition reaffirms our commitment to showing new work by early career artists.”
Survey is at Bluecoat until June 23 and is free.
