Edmund Tan Echo of the Past

After the great success of the Architecture + Bluecoat Process and Product exhibition curated by Marco Iuliano with Jane Moscardini and Carla Molinari at the Bluecoat last Spring, Edmund Tan’s work, Echo of the Past, has been selected for Bluecoat’s current exhibition In the Peaceful Dome. 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, tracing 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 nearly 50,000 visitors paid sixpence to see what was at the time Britain’s most controversial sculpture.
