About the exhibition (from Bluecoat website):
John Beck and Matthew Cornford: The Art Schools of North West England
Sat, 17 Nov 2018 – Sun, 31 Mar 2019
John Beck and Matthew Cornford are hunting down all of England’s art schools and photographing the sites as they are today. Sometimes the original building remains, sometimes car parks, supermarkets or building sites have taken their place. This exhibition features new images of 30 art school buildings that were once an integral aspect of creative life in the North West.
