'The Clyde made Glasgow, and Glasgow made the Clyde', runs the old saying. It gave Glasgow life, connected it to the world, enabled it to become the trading powerhouse it once was, and has provided inspiration for centuries of writers and artists. So how is being treated in the city's largely post-industrial phase? Who really 'owns' the Clyde? What should we ask of it? What are the priorities for its future?
Playing on the water is an exhibition of new work by Nikki Kane which follows an extended period of research reflecting on ideas of the River Clyde as an under-used public space. Recent dialogue around these ideas have often centred on the riverbanks as public sites and present the river as a 'monument' or barrier of sorts. This exhibition presents work made in response to the surface of the river itself, and to its movement and materiality, drawing attention to the potential of the water as a site for activity, reflection and motion.
MMIM: Plus-One is a three day residency with ten artists at New Glasgow Society. The residency is organised by MMIM (Katie Reid and Emma Reid). Their projects, prompted by open-source methodologies, bring together artists to share and develop ideas through research, making, and dialogue. MMIM have a prevailing interest in working site-responsively, so the site plays a formative role for each project.
ARTchitecture is an exhibition of collages that celebrates Glasgow's building heritage and merges the elements of art with architecture.
