Opening tonight at the Glue Factory: Erottaa+- us

Please come and join us tonight for the private view of Erottaa +-us at the Glue Factory, starting from 6pm. Put an extra jumper and have a beer with us!

Erottaa +- us (roundup of reindeer) will explore the interaction between two groups of artists— graduates from the Glasgow School of art and Aalto University in Helsinki — when they convene to examine the variations in their artistic practices. This group exhibition at The Glue Factory features artists from both cities following the initial exhibition which took place in Helsinki.

Through this exchange the artists will investigate the possible creation of similar stylistic works, even though they are separated by geographical location; do we remain freestanding individuals with our own distinctive styles now that the distance between the two distinctive cities is shortened due to new modes of communication and digital media?

For the first time, both groups of makers will bring their work and their assumptions to the same location and engage in a truly open forum.
