Title Riverside Solidarity Exhibition at the QEUH – Glasgow Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet Fablevision Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 4/12/17 Description Riverside Solidarity is a year-long exploration of the shared experience of two riverside communities: Govan, Scotland and Gdansk, Poland. Rightly proud of their shipbuilding histories and looking to the future, these communities now face the complex challenges posed by the type and nature of post-industrial regeneration. Over the course of 2017 artists in both communities have formulated a series of questions to address these challenges. What could/should be the future for our industrial heritage? How should these places be preserved or marked? How do people want to use them now?
Hosted by Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS in the QEUH, this final exhibition is funded by Creative Scotland. Working in Govan – and collaborating with colleagues in Gdansk – artists T S Beall, Andy McAvoy, John Mullen, Ben Parry and Lee Ivett, have attempted to address these questions. The work of the artistic team, including, T S Beall with “Strong Women of the Clydeside “and Anna Miler/Metropolitanka, Kamila Chomicz, Magdalena Drozdek, Neil Mackinnon, Andrew McAvoy with Kris Kesiak, John Mullen, Ben Parry and Lee Ivett, Roman Sebastyanski and Fablevision Studios, has been curated by Professor Katarzyna Kosmala (University of the West of Scotland) and Krisztina Lackoi (Exhibitions and Performing Arts Coordinator, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde).

The artist residences in Gdansk were undertaken by t s Beall, Andy McAvoy, John Mullen, and Ben Parry/Lee Ivett and ran from 26 August to 2 September 2017. They took place on the anniversary of the Solidarity movement, coinciding with days of signing the iconic Gdansk agreement in the 1980, which created Solidarność, an independent labour union that changed the politics in Poland, and beyond, forever.
Proud of their shipbuilding histories and looking to the future, these communities now face complex challenges of post-industrial regeneration. Over the course of 2017, artists worked in Govan and Gdansk and posed a series of questions, including:
What could be the future for our industrial heritage?
How should these places be preserved?
How do people want to use them?
