A Picture Show

A Picture Show
Date: 18 July 2013 – 2 February 2014
Space: Gallery 2

Exhibition of work by Glasgow based artists who all consider painting to be central to their practice.

Although there are some common concerns within the group there is no single unifying aspect to their work, or ‘theme’ to the exhibition. Each artist is unique, ‘making their own rules’ through painting. GoMA has worked closely with the artists, selecting the works, discussing the ideas and generating the texts associated with the show. This was the first group show of Glasgow-based painters at GoMA and rather than a comprehensive survey it is a focused selection, bringing out some of the complexity, subtlety and variety of this art form.

Artists: Neil Clements, Michael Fullerton, Lotte Gertz, Charlie Hammond, Louise Hopkins, Merlin James, Andrew Kerr, Victoria Morton, Carol Rhodes, Tony Swain, Hanneline Visnes, George Ziffo
