People who have saved this event:


Looking for Signs: ideas and imagined circumstances is an exhibition by Scottish artist and designer Jimmy Cosgrove (b1939) in which he presents new work alongside a selection of past works spanning some fifty years of a vibrant career in the visual arts.


The exhibition provides a long overdue and intimate insight into the diversity of Cosgrove’s practice introducing audiences to the themes and style of Cosgrove’s practice – namely that of process; materials; and techniques, explored through real and imagined subject matter - and how these elements remain constant and recognisable characteristics within his substantive bodies of work.

Populated by a selection of sketchbooks; travel diaries; screen-printed textiles; posters; photographs; drawings; paintings; collage and text, the exhibition will familiarise audiences with Cosgrove’s keen observation of people and places he has encountered, all re-imagined through a personal lens imbued with spontaneous and constructed narratives that all reflect his immense curiosity in the exploration of ideas. 

Curated by Alison Harley & Fraser Taylor (The Textile Collective).
