What's the connection between Keith Piper and Bluecoat?

What's the connection between Keith Piper and Bluecoat?

Renowned British artist Keith Piper’s new solo show presented by Bluecoat and Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) comprises three new large-scale works spanning installation, digital works and drawings that address current anxieties about the impacts of globalisation. It is the most substantial presentation of the artist’s work in nearly two decades and celebrates the longstanding relationship between Piper and Bluecoat. Below, Bluecoat’s Artistic Director Bryan Biggs explores Keith and Bluecoat’s long standing relationship, and how this latest solo exhibition came to be.

The Choir with No Name, Big Autumn Gig, Fri 28 Oct.

The Choir with No Name run choirs for people who’ve experienced homelessness or are vulnerable. Many of the members have experienced mental health issues, addiction, relationship breakdown and isolation in their lives, where the support of friends and family may be absent. The Choir with No Name provides a welcoming environment in which to build confidence, make friends and experience the multiple benefits of singing to health and wellbeing. Every week, members come together at Bluecoat to sing and sit down for a hot, nutritious meal after every rehearsal. They support each other’s endeavours, musical or otherwise, have the opportunity to learn new skills and forge lasting relationships, and most importantly, they get to experience the power of singing their hearts out amongst good friends.
