Outwith Reading Group | Led by Emmie McLuskey

17:30 on 28 January 2020
Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design

As part of the Cooper Gallery’s reading group sessions Outwith, Glasgow based artist Emmie McLuskey has selected reading material in response to the current exhibition ‘Ambiguous Becoming’. As part of the session, Emmie will lead participants in a close study of Park McArthur and Constantina Zavitsanos’s text ‘The Guild of the Brave Poor Things’ (2017), with optional further reading of extracts from Mariana Ortega’s text ‘Hometactics’ (2014) and Andre Lepecki’s ‘Choreography as an Apparatus of Capture’ (2007). Texts have been selected based on their relationship to art works in the exhibition, expanding on ideas raised surrounding the politics of visibility and what it means to belong.

Emmie’s reading material is taken from ongoing conversations around practice with artists Ima-Abasi Okon and Kimberley O’Neill.

The Reading group is free and open to all. Places can be booked by emailing [email protected]
After signing-up you will receive the texts in advance by email. Print copies can also be requested.
