The Bluecoat Liverpool—Resource
18 July – 27 September 2015
The Piracy Reading Room is set up at the Bluecoat as part of the group exhibition “Resource.”
RESOURCE is a group exhibition inspired by the 1927 founding manifesto of the Bluecoat which states that the organisation was set up to promote not only the arts, but also the ‘diffusion of useful knowledge’. The exhibition extends its enquiry into use and usefulness to its own surroundings, questioning the nature, but also future possibilities of arts centres. Is their value based solely on what is presented publicly or what is also produced behind the scenes? What new resources should a 21st century arts venue offer to remain useful to the public which they serve?
