Rachel Maclean: Happy & Glorious
31 May 2014 until 13 July 2014
Happy&Glorious is a new cinematic exhibition by Glasgow based artist Rachel MacLean, engaging with a young nation through the eyes of a confused new generation.
Proposed as a solo show, MacLean presents A Whole New World, recently commissioned as part of the Margaret Tait Award, alongside a brand new film for CCA.
Taking its title from the Olympic Games anthem, Happy&Glorious draws on the positive and transformative power created by the arrival of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. This emotion – building upon cultural imagination, national identity and urban health – is questioned in a cinematic dissection of its ingredients, in which these positive vibes become disturbing.
A symposium around notions of national identity and artistic practice will accompany the exhibition. TBC
