Art Now: Corin Sworn
27 June – 25 September 2011

Recent MFA graduate Corin Sworn presents Endless Renovation, an installation inspired by a chance discovery of a collection of slides in a skip outside the artist’s house. Meditating on the origins of the slides, the narrative combines meandering thoughts with excerpts from poetry and writings.

An Exhibition to celebrate the closure of The Vic Café Bar

Sunday 19th June 2011 7pm - 1am

'The End' is upon us, in a matter of weeks work will begin as the The Vic is completely refurbished and partly demolished. This will radically alter the character of the place that has fostered creativity in a multitude of forms in Glasgow over the last 80 years and become a significant social reference point for generations of students, artists and musicians.

The interior will be emptied, stripped and opened up to create temporary exhibition and event spaces before works start later this month. This will be a unique opportunity for anyone who has an attachment to this influential venue to experience it like never before.

The Artists invovled in realising this project are

Stephen Campbell, Beagles & Ramsay, Gregor Johnstone, Gregor Wright

Rob Churm, Sarah Jane Wright, Patrick Jamieson, Dan Miller, Neil Clements

Dominic Samsworth, Nick Evans, Stephen Sutcliffe, Craig Mullholland

Iain Hetherington, Alex Pollard, Lila De Magalhaes, Leanne Hopper

Robbie Thomson, Michael White, Alan Stanners, Torsten Lauschman

August Krogan-Roley, Jack Wrigley, Heather Landed, Douglas Moreland + more TBC

Also, Gig in the practice room (through the toilets) organised by Prolife & Ultimate Thrush

Gordon Foundation MFA Graduate Fellowship 2011

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Gordon Foundation MFA Graduate Fellowship has been awarded to Alex Impey.

The announcement was made public on Wednesday, 08 June 2011 at The Glasgow School of Art’s Master of Fine Art (MFA) Degree Show preview by the Head of the Programme, John Calcutt.

Impey's work spans across drawing, sculpture, sound and writing. He'll begin his fellowship in November 2011and we look forward to working with him over the coming year.

'A tick can stay dormant for eighteen years when isolated from the conditions that trigger its behaviour. My work attempts to appropriate something of this inscrutable poise, in a set of figurations as pauses in habits around the use of languages and objects, which simultaneously seek to refer to their own consumption.' Alex Impey

If you would like to catch Alex’s work and the rest of the MFA Degree Show it runs until Saturday 18 June 2011. Opening Times 11am-6pm Tuesday - Saturday at The Glue Factory 15 Burns Street Speirs Locks Glasgow G4.
