Marlie Mul: This exhibition is cancelled

Marlie Mul: This exhibition is Cancelled
Date: 26 May – 29 October 2017
Space: Gallery 1

This would have been Marlie Mul’s first exhibition in Scotland, however after careful consideration the artist has cancelled the exhibition. There is no exhibition. Except for large billboard posters that advertised the exhibition’s cancellation, the gallery is empty.

While there is no exhibition, visitors were welcome to continue to use the gallery space. Over 100 activities, workshops, temporary exhibitions took place throughout the duration of the exhibition.
