GoMA - Glasgow Museums

GoMA - Glasgow Museums GoMA is the most visited modern art gallery in Scotland. Entry is free. Social Media House Rules: https://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/social GoMA is housed in an iconic building located in the heart of Glasgow, which it shares with the city centre library.

It plays an important part in the city’s rich heritage which continues today. For over 100 years the building was a centre for business and commercial exchange where information and goods were traded. GoMA continues that philosophy of exchange by being a centre for people to gather, discuss and learn, inspired by the art it collects and shows. GoMA believes in working with every community of the city and has gained international recognition for its social engagement programming.

Lovely evening yesterday at the Pearce Institute in Govan to see #collectionartist Jacqueline Donachie’s work Beautiful Sunday. Such a wonderful space to see the work in which was commissioned by Creative Folkestone Triennal and shown there earlier this year.

Fantastic stark soundtrack and filming which held your gaze and found their way in your body movements watching the piece. Sometimes brought short by a clap. So good to meet some of the dancers as well. Congratulations!

With special thanks to Netoya of Veritas Maat sees thru the veil youtube channel.

Huge thanks to Ashanti Harris for developing the work for GoMA and everyone involved in the performance including Collective Text who provided captions and audio descriptions for the powerful sound work on Caribbean spirits that played while the performers responded to that history through slow, careful, movements that kept us mesmerised throughout.

An Exercise in Exorcism has been supported by Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Art Fund’s Respond and Reimagine Fund.

An Exercise in Exorcism - a performance reconceived by Ashanti Harris for three dancers to be performed in the opulent main space at GoMA. Saturday 20 November, 4pm - 🎟in bio

Ashanti Harris utilises dance, performance and installation to reimagine historical narratives from a Caribbean diasporic perspective. Working with a desire to make invisible histories visible, her recent research explores the colonial relationship between Guyana and Scotland and the ways in which these geographies and cultures are ‘haunted’ by one another. An Exercise in Exorcism is a performance in three parts executed whilst listening to three episodes of 'Veritas Maat sees thru the veil' – a youtube channel made by spiritual entrepreneur, Netoya – which introduces the different Guyanese Jumbies. The jumbie is a Caribbean colloquial for ghost and is representative of reconfiguring narratives of the past within the present. Originally a solo performance, An Exercise in Exorcism has been reconceived for three dancers to be performed in the opulent main gallery space GoMA, illuminating the building as another haunted site of this complex history Harris is exploring.
An Exercise in Exorcism has been developed for GoMA as part of a series of performances supported by Art Fund’s Respond and Reimagine Fund and Glasgow City Heritage Trust.

Alberta Whittle

To celebrate Black History Month, the team at GoMA have chosen Alberta Whittle as inspiration for a colourful October half-term activity. Alberta is a Glasgow-based artist who works across film, sculpture, collage and choreographed installation to reflect her Scottish-Caribbean heritage (she was born in Barbados) and her interest in migrating cultures. She has spoken openly about the erasure of black people in everyday society and why the #BlackLivesMatter movement is now more important than ever.
Get inspired by Alberta Whittle’s work in GoMA’s 2018 exhibition “Inner City” to make your own colourful collage.

‘Drink in the Beauty’ at GoMA has reopened after a temporary closure. This is the first show to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the museum, featuring works by women artists from Glasgow Museums’ collection, including Kate V Robertson and Ilana Halperin. Displayed for the first time is a series of works by Kate V Robertson, recently acquired by GoMa with generous support from Outset. The exhibition explores representations of landscape, geology and human aspirations by artists who have documented and recorded the natural environment. More pressingly, it opens up conversations with current debates on climate justice and legacies of the British Empire. ‘Drink in the beauty and wonder at the meaning of what you see’ The title of the exhibition comes from this quote by the eminent conservationist and author Rachel Louise Carson. In her groundbreaking work ’Silent Spring’, published over 50 years ago, Carson wrote about the catastrophic and wide ranging effects of the use of pesticides. The publication is often credited with advancing the global environmental movement. GoMA - Glasgow Museums, #KateVRobertson, #IlanaHalperin, #Outset, Glasgow Life, Ilana Halperin

The GoMA Youth Group is pleased to announce that sinking feeling, their upcoming exhibition, which will be on show in the GoMA - Glasgow Museums Commonspace from the 11th September 2021 until 9th January 2022! that sinking feeling is the final output from the 2020/21 GoMA Youth Group (GYG), a collective of young people aged 16-25. This year’s GYG have been working with the Gallery of Modern Art since September 2020. Through this collaboration, they hope to influence the Gallery to be a space where young people feel represented. We are currently living through an age of a global pandemic amongst a climate crisis. Too often, the voices of young people have been ignored. that sinking feeling, title of a 1979 Glaswegian film, is a creative exploration of the experiences of young people living through this turbulent time. For many of us, the pandemic and climate crisis have presented losses in our lives. Yet, navigating through this, we have also found new ways of living and finding joy. that sinking feeling displays artworks from six members of the group, whilst the other four members were responsible for the curation of the show. GoMA Youth Group members: Lily Allspaugh, Aqsa Arif, Benjamin Hall, Jennifer Logan, Natalie Lorimer, Hayley McDonald, Emily Brooks Millar, Kirsty Reid, Connor Ross, Hollie Wade The GoMA Youth Group is funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Arts Fund through Creative Scotland with the support from Youth Music Initiative and Time to Shine. The exhibition is open during GoMA's opening times. Admission to GoMA is free and no tickets needed! #COP26 #OurClimateStories
