Deniz Uster

Citadel

Exhibition

Citadel proposes ecological, alternate mechanised cities in transit, which evade the authority of traditional infrastructure and class. The exhibition includes a scaled model of a moving city, an audio piece authored by Gurcim Yilmaz, drawings and public engagement events.

The 1960s cold war era witnessed Ron Herron’s idea of ‘Walking Cities’, conceived as ‘arks’ that would provide post-apocalyptic protection to surviving communities. As opposed to Herron’s revolutionary attitude, Citadel depicts a slowly-evolving anarchist utopia, a consequence of automation.

Supported by the Hope Scott Trust.

Deniz Uster – Harvest Stone, Cultivate Care:

Community Empowerment Through Community Rights to Buy Land

Event
Talk

Driven by the issues raised in Deniz Uster’s exhibition Citadel, Linda Gillespie from Community Ownership Support Service and David Adams from Helensburgh Community Woodlands Group will lead a discussion  revolving around Community Right to Buy Land, a pre-emptive right for communities throughout Scotland under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, which was improved by the Community Empowerment Act in 2015.

It provides communities who successfully register a community interest in land (churches, pubs, estates, empty shops, woodland, fields, or buildings that are abandoned, neglected or detrimental to the environmental well-being of the community where the owner is not willing to sell) with the first option to buy when the registered land is offered for sale.

Free, no booking required

Friday 27th April, 3pm

Nadia Myre

Code-Switching and Other Work

Exhibition

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.
