How to _____ Better is an exhibition in Glasgow’s Southside as part of GY Open House Arts Festival


How to Work Better (1991) is a well-known work by Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss. It consists of a ten-point manifesto that the artists found, enlarged, and had painted on the side of a building in Zurich

Their instructions are meant as a self-motivating reminder and description of their own process as artists, but are also directed to the rest of the world as a propositional code of conduct or ethic of behaviour

We invite local artist to respond to the prompt How to _____ Better, by completing the blank with a work of their own. We aim to communicate the voices, practices, ideologies and attitudes of Glasgow, exploring the many faces of the local. The concept is more a continuing question rather than an answer. It encourages experimentation and disruption, championing the artistic practice above even the final artistic output

We are accepting applications up until midday Monday 23rd April, 2018. If you are interested in applying then please send images and details such as medium, dimensions, and technical or special requirements to howtoblankbetter@gmail.com

For further information please contact Erin & Katie on howtoblankbetter@gmail.com

About GY Open House Arts Festival:

‘Shamelessly looking to ride the wave of GI, GY was conceived in 2016 in lieu of a ‘Glasgow Open House’ as a grassroots alternative to Glasgow’s world-renowned biennial festival of contemporary art. Having hosted a programme of successful events in our first edition, we return in 2018 with the same DIY ethos to stimulate a weekend of exhibitions and happenings that promote the incredible talents within the local community of artist’
