A major solo exhibition by Glasgow-based artist Jacqueline Donachie, including an ambitious new body of work exploring disability, care and loss.

Since 2002, Donachie has worked with a range of scientific and medical professionals in collaborative processes to produce new ideas and artworks. This exciting new commission with GoMA, supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award, includes sculpture and drawings made in the last five years alongside new works developed from a period of research with a group of women affected by an inherited genetic condition, made in collaboration with the UK Myotonic Dystrophy Patient Registry at The John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre in Newcastle.

Artist: Jacqueline Donachie, with support from The Wellcome Trust Small Grants Award and the National Lottery through the Creative Scotland Open Project Fund
