Melissa Gordon: Fallible Space 
Continues until Sun 31 Jan 2016

Painter, printmaker and editor, Melissa Gordon is interested in addressing the exhibition as a ‘theatre in the round’: highlighting shifting perspectives when staging her work. Here she presents a week long exhibition in Bluecoat's Performance Space which launches with the first ever staging of Mina Loy's 1916 play 'Collision'. Loy's script determining the hang of her canvases. This project is accompanied by a longer running installation of  paintings, the 'Material Evidence' series, in the Vide.
