Glasgow International 2014 featuring recent MFA graduates

Hardeep Pandhal

Date: 04 Apr – 21 Apr
Type: Exhibition
Location: Charlotte St
Recipient of the Glasgow Open Bursary, MFA graduate Hardeep Pandhal presents a project investigating the history and visual identity of the coffee substitute brand Camp Coffee. From his position as a British man of Indian origin he has re-imagined the characters on the company’s logo and their shifting colonialist reading.
A series of lamppost banners depicting Pandhal’s proposed branding will be erected on Charlotte St, where the original Camp Coffee factory once stood. Alongside this, is the premiere of a new film that documents the creation of the banners and explores the notion of self-censorship in relation to making a potentially polemical public artwork. Information about the film is also available on the festival website.


Lola Dupre, Elizabeth McDonald, John Nicol, Carla Novi, and Gaby Peters, curated by Seth Orion Schwaiger
