Janie Nicoll and Ailie Rutherford: In Kind

27 Apr 2018 → 2 May 2018
All ages

In Kind is a collaborative action research project by visual artists, Janie Nicoll and Ailie Rutherford, examining the “below the water-line” economy of Glasgow International 2018, charting the unseen, unaccounted for efforts that enable ‘Glasgow International’ to take place; exploring the support in kind, unpaid labour, mutual favours, gifts and volunteer hours that go into making GI an apparent success. This project will measure the huge outpouring of creative energy and generosity normally unseen and undocumented, illustrating how artists support the creation of not just their own work but also the work of others.

Throughout GI the artists will operate from a mobile unit to be situated at CCA, Platform and Trongate 103, acting as both a focus point to collate data and a multi-media visual display unit. The mobile unit will be a catalyst for conversation, discussion and a series of curated events that will interrogate the themes of artist precocity, and the sustainability of the sector.
