Holy Wave


Holy Wave touches on the connection between art and ritual; a connection less obvious today, as art becomes increasingly self-reflective, and religious rituals abide by rules stemming from years of unchanged worship. It remains essential, however, in understanding art’s role in contemporary society and spiritual life.

The artists view the art object as charged with power; a combination of intention and action; of emotions and thoughts that cannot be separated from material and labour.

Supported by WAVEparticle as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces.

Early Learning - Curated by Mhari McMullan and Katy West


Early Learning explores the legacies of the Kindergarten educational method through unique commissions from a group of artists, designers and their young children.

Each of the commissioned artists’ practices reflect processes relating to Friedrich Fröbel’s 20 ‘gifts and occupations’ – play materials for young children ranging from building blocks to modelling clay, designed for the original Kindergarten. In exploring these processes with their own children, the artists present new possibilities and variations of the original system. More information available at

Supported by Glasgow International, the Hope Scott Trust, Glasgow Life and the Goethe Institute.

Simon Buckley and Othmar Farré Present FOUNDATION PAINTING SHOW

Jedrzej Cichosz, Olga Cerkasova, Adrian Falkner, Michael Fullerton, Paula Henrike Herrmann, Jan Kiefer, Andrew Kerr, Mathis Gasser, Raphael Linsi, Sophie Mackfall, France-Lise McGurn, Victoria Morton, Alys Owen, Max Ruf, Justin Stephens, Mandy Ure, Anna Diehl


Instead of being hung on a gallery wall, the paintings in this accessible and playful exhibition are placed on sofas in the window of the British Heart Foundation shop on Stockwell Street. Each day, Simon Buckley and Othmar Farré will arrange a new configuration of three or four pieces by a host of international artists.

Placed on the sofas, the paintings project a hard-won casualness, a contorted scene set and there they sit, hiding in plain sight, quietly championing the relevance of a little bit of irreverence.

Supported by Glasgow International. With thanks to The British Heart Foundation.

Thu 20 April – Mon 7 May
Mon – Fri, 9.30am-5.30pm
