This thematic exhibition, curated by Bill Hare and Andrew Patrizio of The University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with Dovecot, provides a radically new and fascinating presentation of the shared concerns which have obsessed many of the most important Scottish artists since the end of World War Two. The Scottish Endarkenment explores a wide range of disturbing and provocative topics, from ever-escalating international conflict, social inequality and unrest, gender identity and sexual prejudice – all fired by the dialectical struggles within the Scottish psyche between good and evil, Self and the Other. All these subjects are imaginatively treated within a variety of different interpretations and mediums – from the out-and-out horrific to the darkly satirical. Included amongst the forty or so exhibits are works by major Scottish artists including David Shrigley, Joyce Cairns and Steven Campbell.

Full list of artists:
Beagles & Ramsay, John Bellany, Christine Borland, Joyce Cairns
Steven Campbell, Robert Colquhoun, Fred Crayk, Ken Currie
Alan Davie, Kenneth Dingwall, Pat Douthwaite, Joan Eardley

Culte Cargo

Conor Kelly & Kari Stewart
13th May—16th May 2016
Preview: 13th May, 7—9pm


Culte Cargo is a 3-day project and exhibition of works by MFA graduates Conor Kelly and Kari Stewart. The works are products and by-products of individual and collaborative enquiries. Threading the project together is an adherence to pursuing failures of protocol, measuring coincidence against the whittling of meaning.

Kelly and Stewart (now in their mid thirties) make paintings, drawings, texts and sculptures without fees, free time, or decent broadband.

Tuesday 26th April 8pm
Assembly Hall, The Art School, Renfrew Street, Glasgow

Intersections is a multi-genre event which unites new music with new art. With six world premieres for ensemble created jointly with six new works of live art, this unique event will take place in the relaxed setting of Glasgowʼs iconic School of Art.

Curated and produced by co-artistic directors, conductor Jessica Cottis and composer Richard Greer, this collaborative project examines the limits of what we might normally consider ʻmusicʼ or ʻartʼ and explores the intersections between.

Each composer/artist pair have collaborated to create extraordinary works with topics as varied as nuclear submarines, the Kelvin Way, distant dying stars, talking to crows, and digestion are explored through simultaneous LIVE art and music.

Featuring artists Julian Tolhurst, Chloe Reid, Rhona Muhlebach, Olga Kaliszer, Jennifer Mason and James Dixon, composers Jay Capperauld, Euan Ferguson, Richard Greer, Beki Smith, Matt Zurowski and Claire McCue, and the GNME conducted by Jessica Cottis.
