Curated by Sarah McCrory

Glasgow is a city that makes things. Historically a center for craft and industry, it has today become a hotbed for artists, drawn by the Glasgow School of Art, who continue to live and work there after graduation. McCrory devised the program with this duality in mind, curating a series of commissions and exhibitions that consider the city’s industrial legacy in relation to the studio-production culture of artists based there—inferring that the psyches of the city’s denizens are steeped in its industrial past. Tramway will play host to a group exhibition that includes Claire Barclay’s play on artisanal craft, Mika Rottenberg’s take on the physicality of labor, and Lawrence Lek’s code as virtual architecture, in an environment designed by Martin Boyce. Other highlights include a Cosima von Bonin survey and commissions by Tamara Henderson, Tessa Lynch, and Aaron Angell.
