Over the past few months I've been helping organize an exhibition in Kelvingrove Art Galleries in aid of the new Riverside Museum which opens in Glasgow in the Spring of 2011. Designed by Zaha Hadid the Riverside is Glasgow's new transport museum.
We have 27 artists who have had access to the site and who have been asked to come up with work which in some way ties in with the whole idea of the museum, transport, the river, Glasgow
or the workmen building the museum...whatever makes a link. The images have been flooding in over the past two weeks and this looks like it will be an extraordinary exhibition. We have great names such as Peter Howson, Adrian Wiszniewski, Glen Scouller, John Kingsley and Sue Biazotti.
The painting above is 'Clydeport' by Katie Pope.
The exhibition runs from 13th November until the end of January.
