The Bluecoat Liverpool Inexhibit

The Bluecoat is a center for the contemporary arts, located in the heart of Liverpool, devoted to different forms of creativity, from visual arts to music, from dance to literature.
The center is housed in an 18th century listed building that was completely redeveloped in 2008.

More than a traditional exhibition hall, the Bluecoat is a meeting point for creative professionals but also for children, families and art enthusiasts, thanks to its broad offer of workshops, special events, and learning activities.
In its long history, the centre housed exhibitions of artists such as Picasso, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Matisse Gauguin and Yoko Ono, but also of many young artists, as well as music concerts, also by  Stravinsky, Bartok, Britten, Sun Ra and Michael Nyman, dance performances and public lectures by major writers, like Doris Lessing.

At the Bluecoat, spaces for temporary exhibitions and performances, creative workshops, a restaurant, and a pleasant garden are available to the visitors. The center is also one of the main venues of the Liverpool Biennial. The Bluecoat is mostly accessible to people with disabilities, although the access to the older parts of the building may be limited.
