Glasgow International 2020

Sarah Rose

Sarah Rose (b. 1985 in London, England) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rose reconsiders processes that observe and communicate events and experiences as reproductions made by a plurality of subjects. She engages with ephemeral, unstable and candid forms of information proliferation and in their representation retains the particular tensions arising from the contingent and uncertain materials.

Solo exhibitions include Difficult Mothers, SWG3, Glasgow, Scotland (2017); The Printers Devil, Intermedia Gallery, Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow, Scotland (2015), Between One and Another Turn, Rm Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand.

Group exhibitions include: Lilt, Twang, Tremor (with Susannah Stark and Hanna Tuulikki), Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow (2017); NOWNESS, Scottish Museum of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Scotland (2017), New Nightclub for Courtenay Place (with lightreading), Wellington, New Zealand; Stem (with Lauren Gault), Baltic 39, Newcastle, England (2017); L*, Darling Foundry, Montreal, Canad

Lauren Gault and Sarah Rose



Lauren Gault and Sarah Rose present new works in, around and surfacing the Forth and Clyde Canal water at the edge of Glasgow’s city centre.

Historically a trade and transport route connecting the city to its wider environs, the canal is now a leisure area. This hierarchical shift in function from the industrial to recreational results in a latent energy – a quiet stasis of managed movement. The artists’ works emerge through the indeterminacy of the outdoor habitat and the canal’s rhythm – its movement and circulation.

Supported by Glasgow International and Scottish Canals.

Mon – Sun, 9am-7pm

Facilities/parking at Glasgow Sculpture Studios, The Whisky Bond, Mon-Sat, 9am-5pm
