All ages

front matter is a new exhibition of work by Glasgow based artist Jessica Higgins produced in anticipation and to accompany dedications - a new performance that will debut at Outskirts Festival 2019.

front matter is a series of print and sculptural artworks presented as an expanded score inspired by the speculative space of the promotional poster and bulletins. Through notation, citation and fictioning, a series of new artworks will populate Platform’s public thoroughfares; lending volume to the habitual performing body through forms of speaking, listening, address and acknowledgement.
