This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.

Glasgow-based artist Emmie McLuskey and Ima-Abasi Okon, who lives and works in Amsterdam and London, are presenting artwork within the domestic setting of Radclyffe Hall, alongside texts by writer Mason Leaver-Yap.

McLuskey works with sculpture, print, sound and performance to explore the physical embodiment of communication with a particular focus on systems of learning. She regularly works with other artists to produce collaborative work. Okon combines sculpture, sound and video to produce installations that borrow from language and grammar as a way of complicating the construction of knowledge. In 2019, McLuskey and Okon programmed Hanging Out, the eighth edition of the Artist Moving Image Festival at Tramway alongside film-maker Kimberley O’Neill. They are continuing ongoing conversations by presenting a two-person exhibition for GI.
