Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Artist Ross Sinclair curates an exhibition celebrating the intertwined relationships of his twin passions of art and music and has invited 100 like-minded practitioners to join in. These themes have been prevalent in Sinclair’s own work as an artist since he took time out of his studies at the Glasgow School of Art to become a founding member of popular Glaswegian beat combo The Soup Dragons in the mid 1980’s. Sinclair has invited 100 members from the art and music communities to submit an artwork, (irrespective of which form they are best known for) and to contribute an example of their music for a digital mix-tape that will be played in the space. Films and videos will be exhibited reflecting an eclectic mix of pop video, performance and film-work. The exhibition includes works by Turner prize-winning artists, Douglas Gordon, Simon Starling, Susan Philipsz, Martin Boyce and Martin Creed alongside other luminaries Dave Shrigley, Vikki Morton, Scott Myles, Jonathan Monk, Hanna Tuulikki, Marianne Greated, Jessica Voorsanger, Bob and Roberta Smith, Anne-Marie Copestake, Ross Birrell, Clara Ursitti, Nathan Coley, Ruth Barker, Roddy Buchanan, Michelle Hannah, Graham Fagen, Becky Sic, Craig Mulholland, Natalie Doyle, Bob & Roberta Smith, Beagles and Ramsay alongside a host of others including students from Glasgow School of Art whom Sinclair has collaborated in a series of performances and recordings most recently exhibited at Shanghai Himalayas Museum, Hayley Jane Dawson, Amy Di Rollo, Millie Angel, Iain McCall and Lin Zheng.
