Eating An Ulster Fry Up Off an Ipad

James Oberhelm

Project Space, The Vic, 20 Scott Street, Glasgow, G3 6PE
Tue 29th November 2016 Roman, 3pm

Ladies and gentlemen
boys and girls
beasts and dreamers
advocates and indicted

here in the cancerous labyrinth of our techno-imperium, in the acrid and rancid miasma of a millennia-long come-down, where imprisonment in the rotten bowels of a slave camp is hawked as a brave new transcendence, we find ourselves in a greasy spoon, down some overlooked byway at an unknown hour, face to face with death in the form of a clown. It is The Maggot, here to instruct us in the perverse art of cosmic reversion, by means of a fry-up. Hidden in the face of the dark satanic everywhere that is the consumer totality, the imperialism of ordered normality collapsing into the viscid maw of a joyously devouring demon is revelation of everyday life.

Have you ever wondered how you really do become death, destroyer of worlds? 
Come along then.

Cones & Eggs - Geneva Sills

New photographic work by Geneva Sills

Cones & Eggs attempts to renew and simplify an appreciation for the materiality of photography and the female form. Still lifes, presented as gelatin silver prints, act as sexually charged stand-ins amplified further by accompanying colour pigment prints.

Sills’ new gelatin silver prints reference, in order to re-orient, the work of commercial/fashion photographer Paul Outerbridge. Her new pigment prints emphasize the connections between photography and painting.

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
Graham Fagen, Boyle Family, Helen Flockhart, Luke Fowler

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.

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.

Jamie Crewe at Transmission


Transmission are pleased to present But what was most awful was a girl who was singing, the first solo exhibition of newly commissioned works by the artist Jamie Crewe (MFA 2015).

Incorporating text, video, drawing, sculpture and spatial interventions, Jamie's work is often generated from one or two significant reference points – plays, films, novels and more, which are revisited and mobilised in strange ways. The aesthetic and political qualities of these sources, and particularly references to the gay male cultural canon, are considered from a transfeminine position which Jamie describes as ‘both critical and complicit’; fuelled both by the urge to trace histories, identities, communities and desires, and by the urge to uproot them.

Katie Schwab Together In A Room


Katie Schwab

Together in a Room

20 February – 24 April 2016
Together in a Room is an exhibition of new work by Katie Schwab, developed through her time as Associate Producer, part of Satellites Programme 2016.

Katie's practice incorporates textiles, video, ceramics and functional furniture brought together in installations. The exhibition Together in a Room is a culmination of the research that Katie has undertaken as Associate Producer for Satellites Programme 2016, and is concerned with the potential relationships built between people, shapes, colours and histories within an interior environment.
During her time with Collective, Katie has developed her interest in the politics of, and relationships between, craft, design, housing and education. As part of her research, she has visited spaces associated with forms of 20th and 21st century domestic design and craft education, including homes, museums, showrooms, schools and colleges.
Inspired by storefront displays and 1960’s Lundby dolls house design, Katie has created a new installation for Collective’s temporary exhibition space that comprises a new film work, embroidery, handmade stools and decorated floor and walls. All of the elements in the exhibition have been made simultaneously, meaning that shapes, lines, rhythms and colours are echoed throughout the different mediums. Katie graduated from the MFA Programme at Glasgow School of Art in 2015.

Dani Marti Black Sun

Dani Marti (MFA 2007) presents his first West Australian solo exhibition as part of the Perth International Arts festival. Working across video, installation, public art and canvas, Marti combines video and textiles to construct unconventional portraits in woven paintings and performance video works.
These portraits often reflect on encounters with family, lovers and strangers, offering poignant reflections about intimacy and sexuality. The Black Sun presents new hard-woven canvas, audio and video works that are epic in scale, and use unexpected materials including stainless steel scourers, rubber, leather, necklaces and plastic.

Ciara Phillips new solo show

Ciara Phillips

What we recognise in others

16 January – 12 March 2016

CCA Derry Londonderry

10–12 Artillery St
BT48 6RG, Northern Ireland 

CCA is pleased to present What we recognise in others, an exhibition of new work by Ciara Phillips. The exhibition is her first solo presentation in the UK and Ireland since her nomination for the Turner Prize in 2014.
Ciara Phillips’ practice is centred on printmaking and its various processes and collaborations. For her exhibition at CCA, Phillips will present new works that have been developed from photographs taken of the artist’s friends in their places of work. These photographs have been screenprinted onto fabric and applied with layers of colour and text that variously mask areas of the image; the works moving between abstraction and representation, elusion and recognition.  This approach also extends outwardly from individual works to the exhibition space itself, with wall painting and additional fabric and paper works creating an immersive and layered environment.
Although the works are not directly motivated by the politics of labour, they do reflect Phillips’ interest in the way that, for many creative workers, the private and public realm are becoming increasingly indistinguishable.
In previous projects, Phillips has worked collaboratively with other artists, designers, community and campaign groups in the production of works; an approach that is connected to the long- standing history of screen-printing as a tool for social and political activism. While Phillips often utilises the potential of printmaking as a medium of repetition, reproduction, and wide distribution, What we recognise in others goes further to emphasise the human and gestural relationships that inhabit these processes.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a poster designed by Ciara Phillips produced in a limited edition of 300. The first 100 posters will be available free to collect at CCA; £5 thereafter or via post (£5 + postage and packaging costs). For further information, please contact

BANG! Owen Piper and Neil Bickerton

Mick Peter at Drawing Room, London

Mick Peter
Pyramid Selling

17 January – 13 March 2016
Opening Saturday 16 January 3 - 6pm
For Pyramid Selling Peter transports us into a cartoon-like illustration realised on a monumental scale and the gallery becomes the site of activities associated with manual labour and with the retail industry.  Peter’s life-size cartoon sketches come alive and populate the environment, whilst sculptures of oversized zips pose as items for sale.
Pyramid Selling is Peter’s most ambitious installation to date, and was conceived for the cavernous space of Tramway in Glasgow.  Its new iteration for Drawing Room is a condensed and intensive version which immerses visitors who unwittingly become active participants in this animated environment.
Pyramid Selling was  originally commissioned for Tramway, Glasgow 2015, and the production was funded by  The Henry Moore Foundation, Creative Scotland, and Glasgow Arts.
