SEDA Green Drinks - Rural Rides with Chaparro – Land and Tradition in Spain's Sierra de Huelva with Jan Nimmo
Glasgow-based artist and filmmaker Jan Nimmo has spent more than ten years getting to know the Sierra de Huelva, its people and the local skills and traditions of this part of Andalucia. She has done this on horseback and has been able to explore places that are truly off the beaten track, gathering the testimonies of the agricultural workers, collecting images and making portraits the people who work in the sustainable but now threatened cork industry.
ARTchitecture is an exhibition of collages that celebrates Glasgow's building heritage and merges the elements of art with architecture, and will run at NGS from 31st October - 13 November, 10am-4pm. A preview will take place at 18:30 on Tues Nov 1st.
Following last year's debut success, this October New Glasgow Society presents 'Imagine Glasgow 2016' - bringing students from both Strathclyde University and Mackintosh School of Architecture together to tackle contemporary urban issues in the city of Glasgow, with outstanding architecture and masterplanning projects.
Will the visions of these young architects offer a glimpse of the Glasgow of the future?
Artist and producer Annie Crabtree will be screening a film (no sound) in the window of NGS on Friday 14th Oct and Saturday 15th Oct from 6pm - midnight, to be viewed from the street. An open call is being made for workshop participants to come view the projection on the Friday (sign up here), and partake in a workshop on the Saturday to discuss the projection. On Sunday 16th Oct there will be an open drop in session during the day for anyone who is interested to pop in and find out more about the research.
In a culture where the movement of people is one of the defining topics of the day, how do those new to this city see it? Who are the people in ‘People Make Glasgow’? What are the places (iconic or otherwise) that define the city?
We have submitted the objection below to Glasgow City Council, and would urge others to do the same. Due to rights issues, we're unwilling to reproduce the renderings and images depicting the proposal here, but we would suggest you view them here ('View 1', 'View 2', etc.) - plans are also available on that page. Please consider this proposal very carefully. The deadline for submissions has now passed, and we await developments with interest.
This is a proposal that compromises the character of Sauchiehall Street, regardless of its impact on the Art School, and the present 02 ABC building - both structures of obvious historical and aesthetic importance. We deserve better.
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.
