Glasgow International 2018 at Tramway - What the critics say

Posted on 30 Apr 2018 in News, Visual Art

Louise Buck in The Art Newspaper
As Glasgow International continues at Tramway, our three exhibitions have been attracting critical acclaim.

Louisa Buck in the Art Newspaper describes Mark Leckey’s Nobodaddy as “… one of the festival’s most powerful works”’

Hettie Judah in i says Leckey’s exhibition is “… inescapably powerful”.

Laura Cumming in The Observer writes that Nobodaddy is “… powerfully moving, not least because the Turner prize-winning artist sets up a tension between restlessly compelling, and yet one is drawn loyally back to the poor simple statue the virtual and the real.”

In vogue.co.uk Louise long describes Tai Shani’s Dark Continent – Semiramis as “an effervescent, hypnotic and deeply-moving encounter.”

Rachel Magdeburg in a-n comments that Kapwani Kiwanga’s Soft Measures creates “… a fascinating commentary on migrating matter, people and objects”.

What did you think?

If you haven't visited our GI shows yet, there's still time to come along and critique them for yourself. Tai Shani's installation is open until 7 May only, but Kapwani Kiwanga's show and Mark Leckey: Nobodaddy, our main gallery exhibition, run beyond the festival closing date.
