Bryan Biggs is Artistic Director of Bluecoat, where he has curated exhibitions and events over four decades, working with artists at the intersection of visual art, literature, music and performance. Much of this has been issue-based, culturally diverse and collaborative. He currently leads a cultural legacies programme, exploring echoes of Bluecoat’s heritage in the present. He has overseen capital developments, international cultural exchanges and arts participation programmes involving local communities. He has served on Liverpool Biennial’s and FACT’s boards, and was advisor on the recent research project, Black Artists and Modernism. He has edited/coedited many publications including Art in a City Revisited (2008), Liverpool City of Radicals (2011), Bluecoat, Liverpool: The UK’s first arts centre (2020) and two collections of essays on Wirral-born writer Malcolm Lowry. He is a fine art graduate of Liverpool Polytechnic and does a drawing every day.
