Nadia Myre

Code-Switching and Other Work


This solo presentation of new work from Montreal-based artist Nadia Myre responds to the history of clay tobacco pipe production in Glasgow, and its entanglement with the city’s colonial past.

A by-product of the tobacco trade with the so-called New World, the pipes were one of the first ‘disposable’ items to enter the market, purchased pre-stuffed with tobacco. Curated by Mother Tongue, Myre’s new work explores processes of imprinting, documenting, weaving and excavating to ask enduring questions around colonial legacies.

Supported by Glasgow International, British Council, WASPS, Art Mûr, the Québec Government Office in London, Glasgow School of Art, Concordia University and Canada House.
