FUTURE

GSA Sculpture and Environmental Art Student | Annual Exhibition
23 February – 1 March
Opening Event:  Monday 22 February | 6pm – 8pm
Since 2010, Platform and the Glasgow School of Art have worked in collaboration
to offer a unique opportunity for final year Sculpture and Environmental Art students
to create site related works at Platform and The Bridge. Since November, selected students
have been developing new work in response to the architecture, surrounding neighborhood and the functions of the different facilities in the building. The site specific artworks will include sculpture, sound, film and performance.


The Kildas | Deirdre Nelson
9 – 30 March 
Opening Event: 9 March | 6pm - 8pm

On a modern day pilgrimage in search of Saint Kilda, artist Deirdre Nelson traveled to the Kildas of Scotland, Australia and New Zealand. The project links both past and present, north and south and the people who inhabit the Kildas. The resulting works celebrate the many people she met along the way.


HAP UP Easterhouse | Mandy McIntosh
8 April - 25 April
Opening Event:  Saturday 9 April | 1pm - 5pm

For this year’s Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art, Platform has commissioned Glasgow artist Mandy McIntosh as artist-in-residence. Mandy will place empowerment and endurance at the heart of her residency and working with communities and individuals she will ignite resilience and self-determination through participation in art, craft and design. An inviting and sensory communal multi-functional space hosts a series of gatherings where the artist, with local people, will engage in a new creative activism. This inclusive, inter-generational activism may begin with individual engagement but it ends with communal activity, as people come together for special and creative events. During her residency McIntosh is exploring obsolete crafts and sharing her personal library of craft related books spanning 35 years.  

Project realised with the kind support of Glasgow International 2016





Throughout the year Platform hosts a rolling programme of exhibitions utilising its large scale exhibition wall. Platform has a selection of unique spaces to accommodate all kind of exhibitions. The Exhibitions are accompanied by a series of free talks and workshops, open to the public as well as groups. If you would like more information please contact Margaret McCormick.
