We're delighted to present the first solo exhibition in a UK institution by Sukaina Kubba.

Sukaina Kubba is a multidisciplinary artist whose work is strongly rooted in material and cultural research, storytelling, and drawing connections. The artist works with industrial and packaging materials, and explores travelling objects, textiles and vehicles as carriers of cross-cultural histories. Her practice spans the mediums of drawing, painting, printmaking, fibres, audio, video and installation, and explores narratives of cultural and material assimilation and appropriation.

For this major new solo exhibition at DCA, Kubba will present existing works alongside new commissions created during a month-long production residency in DCA Print Studio in January 2024. During her residency at DCA, Kubba visited several Scottish collections of carpets and textiles, including the Stoddard-Templeton Design Archive at the University of Glasgow; the National Museum of Scotland; and Morton Young Borland Lace Mill in Ayrshire.

These new works in print will be displayed across Gallery 2, ranging from paper pulp casting, embossing and laser engraving to screen prints made on DCA’s large-format press, one of the biggest in Scotland’s printmaking studios. Working on an ambitious scale and largely in monotone, Kubba has created a number of works to be suspended from the ceiling. They will sit alongside work recently created as part of the artist’s participation in the SPACE billboard commission at Mercer Union, Toronto.
