The End: Bulkhead
The End – Bulkhead
Date: 12 November 1998 – 12 January 1999
Space: Ellipse Area
The End: Bulkhead is an exhibition which presents the outcome of a project initiated by artist Nicola Atkinson-Griffith in collaboration with the First Group (Strathclyde Bus Company) and a team of professional artists, Karen Vaughan and Karen Reynolds.
Bulkhead features the work of cartoonists, photographers, screenwriters, visual artists, scientific professionals, designers, inventors, architects, school children and writers. These works were displayed on First Glasgow buses across Glasgow with the aim of fostering the bus passengers’ interaction with public art. Community benefit and local participation was at the core of this initiative. The exhibition at Ellipse Area consists of posters which were part of the Bulkhead project and were already experienced by the public as art, yet in a different context.
