As Glasgow's contemporary biennial art world convenes, Skip-Ad; Play launches a
reactionary expression from 19 April through to 1 May 2018.

About

The central framework of this exhibition is spatial context. It determines a coherence among the diverse artwork displayed, informed by the global origins of the artists and the local production of their respective work. This invokes the Savoy Shopping Centre itself, a uniqueplatform facilitating interaction between the local and global. The concept of the show asked for a creative response and play on what the Savoy was, is, and could be. Accessibility was, therefore, the main point of reference to ensure that this exhibition could be displayed in a functional space. This produced a diverse arrangement of aesthetic and conceptual forms contributed by a large roster of artists.

Skip-Ad; Play is a group exhibition comprised of 25 Glasgow-based artists; Justin Apperly &Emily Chudnovsky; Jason Aaron Wall & Mikhail Sikovikov; Darae Baek; Zoe Beaudry; Cara Bonewitz; Elina Bry; Nien-Ting Chen & Jaxton Su; Megan Clark; Jamie Cooper; Corinna D'Schoto; David Fagan; Wojtek Gasiorowski; Maria Gondek; Sandy Harris; Sarah Keber; Supapong Laodheerasiri; Sun Lee; Jack McCombe; Sin Young Park; Matthew Parkin; Jeanne Tullen; and Jing Xie.

A vast assemblage of performance, video art, sculpture, painting, photography, textiles, and immersive site-specific installations offer an experiential reinterpretation of a community pillar.


The opening launch event will be held on 19 April from 18h00 - 21h00, drinks and hors-
d'oeuvres will kindly be provided by Andell’s Café, accompanied by live performances.

Curated by Edinburgh-based duo Aleya Dwivedi & Laetitia Engelbrecht-Schnuer.
