Craig Mulholland (b.1969, Glasgow, UK) lives and works in Glasgow, UK. Mulholland’s practice studies the colonising effects of virtual digital media on the concrete and the material, and resulting radical ontologies. His current interests have emerged from previous endeavours to dramatically highlight issues raised by information theory and related technologies, focusing on ideologies of progress, entropy and their social, cultural and legal impact.
Mulholland founded the artists’ production collective Opera Autonoma in 2013, and collaborates with artist Michelle Hannah under the moniker of Picana Electrica. Mulholland is also a lecturer and researcher in fine art The Glasgow School Of Art.

N-E-U P-N-E-U-M-A-T-I-C-S !
N – E – U P – N – E – U – M – A – T – I – C – S ! is the inaugural project of the collaborative group hommages, and takes the form of a site specific installation with a series of live performances, a magazine publication and online digital content.
Hommages was founded in 2017 by Craig Mulholland and Carmel O’Brien, and includes MVB (Madeleine Virginia Brown). Central to the group’s objectives, this project will seek to reflect the changing critical status of fetishism and desire in relation to how we consume – and trace a path between humans and the increasingly autonomous objects they create.
Fri 20 April – Mon 7 May
Mon – Sun, 11am-5.30pm
Performances by MVB:
Fri 27 April, 6pm
Fri 4 May, 6pm
