'A Place for the Work and the Human Being' / 8. Elvira Dyangani Ose
18:00 on 7 November 2019
Pearce Institute, 840–860 Govan Road, G51 3UU
‘A Place for the Work and the Human Being’ runs throughout 2019 and takes place in a range of venues, new and old, around Glasgow. The series explores the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today and speakers include artists, architects, curators and others.
For event number eight in the series we are delighted to present Elvira Dyangani Ose.
Elvira Dyangani Ose is Director of The Showroom, London. She is currently affiliated to the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, the Thought Council at the Fondazione Prada and Tate Modern Advisory Council. Until November 2018, she served as Creative Time Senior Curator, where she most recently curated the 11th edition of their Summit. Previously, she curated Laura Lima’s ‘Horse Takes King’, the last iteration of the four-part project, ‘ Slight Agitation’ at the Fondazione Prada, where since 2015 she has curated exhibitions such as Theaster Gates’s ‘ True Value’, and ‘ Betye Saar: Uneasy Dancer’.
The Pearce Institute is one of Govan’s most significant historic buildings. Designed by Sir Rowand Anderson and completed in 1906, the Institute was gifted to the working men and women of Govan by Lady Pearce in memory of her late husband, the shipbuilder Sir William Pearce.
The Institute served the local community with reading rooms, a gymnasium and educational activities and continues to support the people of Govan through work with community groups and social organisations.
The event will take place in the Billiard Room. Refreshments will be served after the event.
Pearce Institute is a fully accessible venue, if you are a wheelchair user please let us know you are attending so we can arrange to use the chairlift. If you would like to attend and require a BSL interpreter, please contact [email protected] at least 2 weeks in advance of the event.
