A(r)t Home Zine is a curatorial project by Louise Burns as part of the MLitt Curatorial Practice course at Glasgow School of Art in conjunction with Glasgow University.
The concept of A(r)t Home Zine has stemmed from research into the domestic space and utilising it for contemporary art display and interaction.
During this last year, the domestic space has transitioned into a multipurpose space with many people working and socialising from home. There have been significant developments in the arts in relation to greater accessibility during this past year; however, this has translated into many exhibitions going digital. A(r)t Home Zine aims to contribute to the accessibility of art engagement whilst still allowing for more intimate, physical, in-person experiences of artwork.
The project has minimal funding and so I would be extremely grateful for any support through your donations. The money will directly fund any expenses for the project, with any remaining money being given to two charities focusing on domestic-related issues in Scotland. The first charity is The Daisy Project which is a domestic abuse advocacy and support service. The second is Social Bite which is a charity tackling homelessness across Scotland by offering jobs in their cafes, hot food and drink and has started ‘Scotland’s Housing First Programme.’
