Abstract

9 December 2017 - 11 June 2018
The exhibition at Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS in the QEUH, culminates research around artists residencies 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 questions of community engagement in the redesigning alternative futures for their localities in the context of regeneration. 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 project has coincided with the anniversary of the Solidarity movement’s/Solidarność signing of the iconic Gdansk agreement in August 1980; an event of such pivotal significance in the history of Poland and Eastern Europe, it predicated the beginning of the end of the Cold War.

In Govan the project has covered the period of the 45th anniversary of Upper Clydeside Shipbuilders work-in, which led to the Heath government’s backdown and the continuance of shipbuilding on this stretch of the Clyde until February 1972.
Over the duration of the exhibition there will be film screenings, guided walks and talks.
