Glasgow International 2018 continues at Tramway

Posted on 7 May 2018 in News, Visual Art

​After 18 days featuring 90 exhibitions at almost 80 venues Glasgow International 2018 finishes on Monday 7 May. 

But not everywhere….

We are delighted to be able to say that you still have the opportunity to see two of our acclaimed exhibitions showing as part of the festival.

Turner Prize winning artist Mark Leckey’s Nobodaddy is open until 1 July.

Kapwani Kiwanga’s Soft Measures is open until 17 June. 

Both exhibitions are free to see, and are open on Tuesdays to Fridays from 12 noon to 5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 12 noon to 6pm. 

Nobodaddy, a co-commission from Tramway and Glasgow International, is inspired by a small statuette of the biblical figure of Job on display in the Wellcome Collection in London. In the galleries, Leckey scales up the statue to human proportions and converts the figure into a 7.1 surround sound audio system. 

Soft Measures takes the fact that the continent of Europe is moving towards Africa at the rate of approximately 2cm per year – eventually it will slide underneath entirely – as a starting point for this new multi-faceted installation.

If you haven’t seen the exhibitions yet or would like to revisit them, we look forward to seeing you at Tramway in May and June.
