Artist Interview: Emma Smith

Artist Interview: Emma Smith

Bluecoat has long been a gallery which has paved the way for more diverse strands of thinking, beyond art. Emma Smith, whose solo exhibition of immersive sound art opened at Bluecoat on the 26 April, treads new territory, exploring the potential benefits of collective singing, and what that term really means.

Bluecoat’s gallery is transformed into a sonic chamber for collective singing in this ground-breaking new sound installation by Emma Smith, based on the music of social communication. Euphonia is an interactive sound work illustrating how we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone when we engage in friendly interactions - such as chitchat with friends.  Smith will draw from sounds created by the many people who visit Bluecoat on a daily basis –parents and babies, visitors to the café and the choirs and groups who rehearse there in the evenings.

Opinion: The controversy of Genesis

Jacob Epstein's Genesis has returned to Bluecoat for the first time in 86 years, as part of the exhibition In the Peaceful Dome. When first exhibited it generated controversy amongst visitors, in part due to its representation of a woman in the late stages of pregnancy. Here Julia Johnson (of Messy Lines) explores the statue's significance alongside other depictions of pregnancy from popular culture.
