Glasgow International 2020

Sarah Tripp

Tripp’s practice has three strands: writing fiction, devising live events and working with moving image and sound.

Her works span the narrative arts and often take more than one form existing simultaneously as publication, performance, film or work for radio broadcast. The status of strangers, gestures of resistance and moods are reoccurring themes of her recent works which draw from psychoanalysis and literature.

Sarah completed a BA in Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art in 1994 and an MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art in 1996 before returning to Glasgow to practice as an artist, writer and curator, and join the committee of the Transmission Gallery. In 2016 she completed her practice-led PhD at Edinburgh University in writing character studies using a cyclical, reflective methodology.

She is a Lecturer on the MFA programme at Glasgow school of art.

Invitations to Forms


An exhibition and seminar series examining ‘form’ in the narrative arts, based around materials curated by five writers and artists.

Visitors are invited to use the space at the Poetry Library at the Mitchell Library as a research centre, and attend seminars by the contributors, each of which will help compile a new vocabulary for exploring ‘the formal’ when approaching the narrative arts of the screen, stage and page.

Supported by Glasgow International, The Glasgow School of Art, the Piet Zwart Institute and The Mitchell Library

Fri 20 April – Mon 7 May
Mon – Thu, 9am-8pm
