Glasgow International 2020

Ailie Rutherford

Ailie Rutherford (b. 1976) is a visual artist.

Her collaborative practice is grounded in the places she works; inviting people to become co-producers of works that activate local public space and collectively imagine alternatives to the way we live now. Her recent work The People’s Bank of Govanhill, Glasgow looks at alternative economies and community currency, considering the diversity and richness of the local community as a form of wealth.

Recent residencies, awards/grants and projects include: Lead Artist in residence, Culture Action Llandudno (2017-18);  For What It’s Worth Community currency project for Room For Improved Futures at Rum 46 (Aarhus, Denmark) (2017); Creative Scotland Open Project Funding for The People’s Bank of Govanhill (2016).

In Kind


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.
