“Relay” presents three consecutive group shows featuring a diverse group of graduate artists from the
Glasgow School of Art. Re-examining the group show dynamic, each group of artists have the
opportunity to ‘relay’ ideas between each other and then pass the baton to the next. Over the course
of three weeks, each show presents new configurations of artists from the cohort, sparking new
conversations between the works.
Art school end of year shows can present an excess of work from many months or years of study: the
result can be overwhelming for both artist and viewer. Afterwards, the artist may find their way of
working and access to resources has changed. Relay gives the artists space to run with their ideas.
Ten months after graduating, forty-three artists from the MLitt Fine Art programme return to participate
in Relay , a self-organised show at Glasgow’s Tramway. Each show presents artists from various
disciplines presenting new ways of working and developments in their practice. In this way, the public
can see the Relay between art school to the cultural life of Glasgow and beyond.
Relay will take place in the Tramway Upper Gallery, 25 Albert Dr, Glasgow G41 2PE.
Open weekly from Thursday - Friday 10am - 5pm, and Saturday - Sunday 10am - 6pm
