Travelling Gallery and Gordon Douglas at Platform
19:00 on 5 November 2018
Coinciding with Travelling Gallery’s current exhibition Black Box Take Stock, Gordon Douglas performs a series of exercises in the theatre. The event is called Mystery Night, and there will be: an FM radio belonging to the technician, painted backdrops from previous Platform productions, hand-made costumes from the exhibition, and a clock borrowed from the office.
Gordon Douglas is a performance artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. He works closely with organisations towards deeper understandings of performativity in collaborative, administrative and partnership practice. He jointly conceives of projects and events with a diverse array of practitioners from arts and non-arts backgrounds. Throughout 2016-17, he worked with Platform, The NewBridge Project and Edinburgh College towards the curatorial-residential research project, Habits of the Co-existent, which became public through a series of events at Platform taking place last year.
For it’s Autumn tour, Platform is pleased to welcome back Travelling Gallery, a unique gallery inside a custom-built bus that travels around Scotland. To mark their 40th birthday, Travelling Gallery has commissioned the new solo exhibition Black Box Take Stock by Glasgow-based artist Gordon Douglas.
The Travelling Gallery will be located in The Bridge car park, at 1000 Westerhouse Road entrance on Monday 5 November, from 1pm – 7pm.
