In the Peaceful Dome exhibition, opens 12 October

Bluecoat Gallery, School Lane, Liverpool, L1, 12 October, 6 – 9pm. Bar and Music 6 – 10pm
Exhibition continues until Sunday 25 March. Open Daily, Free Entry. 

Join them for the launch of In the Peaceful Dome and take a first look at the exhibition, enjoy music in our bar until late and help us celebrate our final 300th anniversary year exhibition.

Concluding Bluecoat’s 300th anniversary year, In the Peaceful Dome brings together historic and contemporary art, new commissions and archival material, to set up conversations across time. It will trace threads that connect points from Bluecoat’s past with the present.

A highlight of the exhibition is Jacob Epstein’s Genesis, first exhibited at Bluecoat in 1931 when 40,000 visitors paid six pence to see what was at the time Britain’s most controversial sculpture.
