New shows at the CCA, Glasgow

On Wednesday 15 February CCA will be hosting the previews for the last exhibition in their series of shorter projects, Underside, backside, inside, even by Laura Aldridge (MFA 2006) and the penultimate exhibition in the Vanguard series, Thinking Ourselves into Existence, curated by Psykick Dancehall.

6 - 8pm on Wednesday 15 February for drinks and a sneak peek.

Underside, backside, inside, even is a new series of fabric sculptures, depicting oversized
pockets found on a variety of clothing, from pinafore dresses to the back pockets of jeans.
Rendered and hand-stitched in great detail, larger than human scale and cut-out from their
original context, these pockets become ‘things’, emphasising their potential to hold other
objects or even the body.

Psykick Dancehall is Hannah Ellul (MFA 2010) and Ben Knight. They will use the Vanguard space to continue their ongoing discussions with musician, musicologist and record label founder Jon Marshall. What are the politics of experimental music and how can they be explored through interdisciplinary means? What new forms of collaboration might this provoke?
