CS features a selection of emerging artists working in a variety of disciplines and aims to bring together work that references or finds its inspiration from the structures, materials and forms of our man-made surroundings. Featuring both the work of artists whose practice naturally fits this theme, as well as those who have created new works specifically for the show. The exhibition is a celebration of architecture, engineering, geometry and construction. The 13 artists have responded the show title using sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, performance, photography and video.
The exhibition has been organised and selected by artist Ric Warren and features the work of 13 emerging artists. With the exception of Joel Dever (University of the Arts London), all artists have at some point spent time studying at The Glasgow School of Art and many now hold studios at Clydebrae Studios in Govan. The show is an attempt to bring together different generations of GSA's recent output, giving graduates with various levels of experience the opportunity to exhibit together and share skills / knowledge. CONSTRUCTS has been put together with a very limited budget with no outside / public funding. The exhibition relies on the hard work and commitment of all involved and particular thanks goes to The White House for hosting the show.
