Look Again



By Julie Shennan

 Bored with everyday life? See mundane objects in a different light at Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art.

 Every Day is a sculptural showcase of six artists’ work, reimagining the scenes we take for granted.

Running from March 22 to September 21, it features sculpture by Laura Aldridge, Carla Scott Fullerton, Niall Macdonald, Scott Myles, Mick Peter and Hayley Tompkins.

 It will also host a performance piece, by Siobhan Davies Dance, between June 11–16.

 The international artists are paying homage to the venue by incorporating Glaswegian convention in their pieces.

 Welcoming the tribute is Councillor Archie Graham, Chair of Glasgow Life.

 Graham said: “These artists are contributing to Glasgow’s worldwide reputation as a centre for contemporary visual art.

 “Their work explores the loosely defined perimeters of sculpture, a medium that has undergone radical change since the early 20th century.”

 Sixteen other Glasgow venues will also be hosting events, workshops and programmes, in March and April as part of Objective, a festival of sculpture.

 Objective is part of the learning and access programme for Every Day, but was not curated by GoMA.
