The Bluecoat Posters

Over 200 posters for exhibitions, performances and other events from the 1960s to the present

This collection of posters provides a snapshot of Bluecoat's arts programme over the past 50 years, from Yoko Ono's 1967 performance to Pierre Henry's Liverpool Mass, presented at the Metropolitan Cathedral as part of Bluecoat's tercentenary programme in 2017. The posters represent just some of those in our archive and we will be adding to this collection in the coming months. Comprising mainly posters for exhibitions in the gallery, others are also included representing performances and literature events and other aspects of our work. The collection also reflects developments in graphic design and the use of typefaces, colour and imagery over this period.

If you have any posters from Bluecoat events that you would be willing to share with us, we would love to add them to our archive if we do not already have a copy.
