Fine Art alumna joins Bluecoat exhibit

Fine Art graduate Sumuyya Khader is among a series of artists whose work is currently on show at the Bluecoat in Liverpool.

The centre for contemporary arts’ exhibit In the Peaceful Dome brings together historic and contemporary art, new commissions and archival material. It is part of the Bluecoat’s 300th anniversary celebrations, bringing together its past and present.

The group exhibit at the Bluecoat traces the centre’s connection to Liverpool and the wider world through themes such as ‘global trade and legacies of empire; Modernism and the fine and applied arts; artists' responses to war and gender; and the gallery as a continuing site for critical engagement’. 

It aims to raise questions about how the past informs the future and how the arts can adopt a more civic role.

Sumuyya graduated from Liverpool Hope with a BA Hons in Fine Art in 2013, and has gone on to exhibit in Liverpool, Birmingham and London.

In 2015, Sumuyya joined the Granby Workshop project in Toxteth, Liverpool, where she acted as operations manager. The Granby Workshop was based in an empty terraced house and was where bespoke tiles, handles and lampshades were crafted for the houses in the Granby Four Streets regeneration scheme.

In the Peaceful Dome runs until Sunday 8th April.
