Spark For Artists
Spark for Artists is an illustrated presentation that explores the role of art and artists in the work of Muriel Spark. Connections are made between motifs in Spark’s work to Elizabeth Price’s recent films, the Artist Placement Group and Arthur Danto’s appropriation of the title of a fictional text from The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie, amongst others.
The presentation uses research conducted in the archives of the National Library of Scotland to script unveiling layers of original and archive imagery.
A screening programme of rarely seen TV and film treatments of Spark’s work runs in association. Additional dates will be available to view on the website.
Commissioned by Glasgow International and supported by Outset Scotland.
