Cabbage is a nomadic artist-led platform for contemporary visual arts, established in 2017. Based in Glasgow, Cabbage programmes regular events and exhibitions throughout the year, as well as running an annual resilience programme for under-represented and early career artists.
Themes often appearing in Cabbage programmes include humour, pop culture, and storytelling, presented in accessible and caring ways. Cabbage works with the majority of its artists more than once, building a continued level of support and community. Creating a supportive and collaborative environment is vital for the platform, and there is an ongoing aim to test out different ways curation and event making can provide sustainable support for artists. Cabbage is committed to always paying artists at or above industry rates, and prioritises platforming marginalised individuals within the arts.
Previous projects have been supported by Glasgow International, Catalyst Arts, GoMA, David Dale Gallery & Studios, CCA, Seamore Neighbourhood Cinema, Queen’s Park Railway Club and Creative Scotland.
Cabbage is run by artist and event-maker Jenny Tipton, and projects are the result of slow conversations and collaborations with other artists. Artist James Jimbo is current project coordinator & treasurer. A regular group of artists co-curate and produce projects.
