Buy a Keith Piper limited edition print

Bluecoat is delighted to announce a new limited edition print by Keith Piper entitled Reviewing the Future in Broken English.

This silk screen print was produced in our Print Studio alongside the artist, to mark Keith's return to Bluecoat after 30 years with his new solo exhibition, Unearthing the Bankers Bones. Organised in partnership with Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts), this exhibition features a major new Arts Council Collection 70th anniversary commission. Unearthing the Banker's Bones continues into 2017, marking the start of Bluecoat's 300th anniversary year.

The print references research and visual strategies which address contemporary concerns about the impacts of globalisation, themes found in the wider exhibition.

The exhibition runs from Fri 28 Oct until Sun 22 Jan 2017. 

All sales proceeds will directly support the future programme of both Iniva and the Bluecoat.

About the Artist

Keith Piper is an artist, curator, researcher and academic. His work over the past 25 years has explored issues of racial, gender and class identity. Piper first exhibited in 1981 as a member of the BLK Art Group, an association of black British art students that included peers Eddie Chambers, Claudette Johnson and Donald Rodney. The group fought to raise the profile of black artists through exhibitions and conferences, a contribution whose significance is only now being recognized in the development of 20th century British art.

Over the past 30 years Piper has used a variety of media, from painting, photography and installation to digital media, video and computer based interactivity. This exhibition will celebrate the long-term relationship between Piper and Bluecoat, which began three decades ago when he first exhibited here in 1985, as part of Black Skin Bluecoat, and again in 1992 with Trophies of Empire. The show will continue into 2017, marking the start of Bluecoat’s 300th anniversary year.
