Social Event - Curated by Love Unlimited
Taking place in a public swimming pool, Social Event is a sculptural and performance-based event that’s immersive in the most literal sense. Performances will take place in and around the pool. Sculptures will be floating and submerged, with the audience viewing the work from within the water.
The artists respond to the public pool’s political history, the context of health and leisure, as well as issues concerning the body and gender by making diverse works which require activation through audience participation, both directly and through more subtle means.

Studwork uses video and installation to traverse the masculine territory of the building site. It situates itself within real life encounters, agitprop feminist rehashing and online tutorials.
Short skits demonstrate moments of exclusion as well as depicting a community in Glasgow that has gathered around the learning of a trade. In particular, this will highlight the women+’s welding collective Slaghammers and the Women in Construction course at City of Glasgow College. Reflecting newly acquired skills-set, the environment vows to be tactile, structural and androgynous.
Supported by Glasgow International, Victoria Mitchell, House for an Art Lover, City of Glasgow College, Slaghammers, Hope Scott Trust and Axisweb.
