Roadmaps

Exhibition

Roadmaps brings together sound and lens-based works by Ewan Mitchell, Zoé Schreiber and Camara Taylor. The exhibition opens a space for reflection on the nexus of personal and collective memory.

Using found images and archival materials as springboards, the artists bring to the fore forgotten stories. They question the legacy of different chapters of history and the impact of contemporary power structures on society and individual lives.

Supported by Glasgow International.

Janie Nicoll and Ailie Rutherford

In Kind

Exhibition

In Kind is a research project by visual artists Janie Nicoll and Ailie Rutherford, which maps the hidden economies of Glasgow International and the “below the water-line” economy of the arts.

Using visual mapping techniques developed by Rutherford through her work on The People’s Bank of Govanhill, as well as Nicoll’s experience of participatory and large-scale curatorial projects, their information booth will gather and display data that exposes this outpouring of creative energy that normally goes unseen.

Self-Service

Installation

Self-Service takes the form of a publication and event series produced in response to the archive of The Peckham Experiment – a radical vision for encouraging health, local empowerment, and self-organisation in the first half of the 20th century.

Designed in collaboration with Maeve Redmond, Self-Service brings together newly produced works by Kirsty Hendry and Ilona Sagar alongside original texts and works by invited collaborators and contributors. Exploring the increasingly uneasy relationship we have to health, wellbeing, and labour, new works sit opposite original artworks, archival material and photographic pieces.

Self-Service - Screening

Event
Screening

Launching at CCA as part of Glasgow International 2018, Self-Service is a collaborative project led by Kirsty Hendry and Ilona Sagar produced in response to the archives of The Peckham Pioneer Centre – a radical biological social experiment for encouraging health, local empowerment, and self-organisation founded in the first half of the 20th century. Taking the form of an event series and publication, Self-Service brings together new works from Hendry, Sagar, and a range of invited collaborators and contributors to explore the history, design, and social context of welfare – examining our increasingly uneasy and technology infused relationship to health, wellbeing labour.

This screening programme is the first of two events that have been developed as a companion to the publication. Bringing together artist moving image works and new commissions, the programme asks; what is a good body? If there are good bodies, are there also disobedient bodies? Selected works will explore how the politics of health are tangled with ideas of compliance, prosperity, and control.

Lab-oratory

Event
Workshop

Lab-oratory accompanies Self-Service, a collaborative project launching at the CCA as part of Gi2018. Self-Service sees Kirsty Hendry and Ilona Sagar respond to the archives of The Peckham Pioneer Centre – a radical biological social experiment for encouraging health, local empowerment, and self-organisation founded in the first half of the 20th century. Taking the form of an event series and publication, Self-Service brings together new works from Hendry, Sagar, and a range of invited collaborators and contributors to explore the history, design, and social context of welfare – examining our increasingly uneasy and technology infused relationship to health, wellbeing labour.

Lab-oratory is the second of two events that have been developed as a companion to the publication. Inspired by serial publication authored by the members of the Peckham Experiment titled ‘Guinea Pig’, Lab-oratory will consider questions of voice, agency, and authority in relation to the archive. Through workshops, talks, and discussion, together we’ll collectively generate new responses to the original materials.

A MAP Magazine project – Curated by Deborah Jackson

We Who Are About To...

Exhibition

We who are about to… takes its title from the 1976 feminist science fiction novel by Joanna Russ, whose story pivots on themes of inevitability and speculation, existence and meaning.

The project comprises a showroom, workshop, screening and discussion that consider visions of the future through the lens of feminist discourse. It examines how art can provide a productive, critical space where future visions can be rehearsed and offer different ways of seeing and understanding, helping us to reveal our present states.

The Showroom will be located at the Savoy Centre.

Additional events will be held at the CCA:

Before Colloquy, Fri 27 April, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

The Showroom, Sun 29 April, 12noon – 6.30pm

Ross Birrell

The Transit of Hermes

Exhibition

This exhibition brings together major film projects by Ross Birrell originally commissioned for documenta 14.

In the film Criollo, an Argentine horse stands at the gateway to New York’s Central Park. How did this solitary animal get there? Is it angel, apparition or gift? Or envoy of a revolution to come?

Criollo was inspired by Tschiffely’s Ride, an equestrian journey from Buenos Aires to New York (1925-1928) which also inspired Birrell’s 2017 Athens-Kassel Ride. Documentation of this journey is exhibited here for the first time. Integral to this work is The Transit of Hermes, the journey of a Greek Arravani horse named after the God of border crossings.

Supported by Creative Scotland.

Unnatural Wealth

Event
Exhibition

A new audiovisual work exploring female Cynics, language and spam, Unnatural Wealth was developed in Scotland, Miami and Austria and culminates in a sound installation with live performance.

The history of the Cynics is revisited to expose elements of language that have a particular gendered quality or resonance; highlighting the flow of objects, words and capital traded in the marketplace. This work invites the listener to experience the expressive female voice in a way that goes beyond convention, and to feel the strength gained through the union of many voices.

Supported by The Fountainhead Residency, Miami, Centre for Contemporary Arts and bb15 Space for Contemporary Art, Linz.
