'In with the New: the Highs of 2012' by Jan Patience The Herald, 02.01.2012

undefinedWe were super-chuffed to be listed in an article by Jan Patience in the Herald's 'High's of 2012' in January. She refers to 'Nothing about us...' as  'quirky, yet strangely grounded' and we will forever be grateful for that. May it be as she describes...

Below is the excerpt from her article which lists loads of stuff to look forward to as part of GI 2012:

Scotland has its fair share of visual arts festivals, ranging from the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art (GI) from April 20-May 7 to the Spring Fling event in Dumfries and Galloway (June 2-5), which sees around 80 arts and craft studios fling open their doors to the public.

GI has already announced solo exhibitions by Glasgow-based Turner prize winner, Richard Wright at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, 2012 Turner nominee Karla Black at Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), Mexican artist Teresa Margolles at Scottish Sculpture Studios and Dutch artist Folkert de Jong at Glasgow School of Art.

Graham Fagen builds on a relationship forged with the National Theatre of Scotland last year on The Missing to work at Tramway again, this time with theatre director Graham Eatough and renowned Scots cinematographer, Michael McDonough on a unique collaboration that blends art installation, promenade theatre and film-making.

Also within GI, there is Henry Coombes at House for an Art Lover and the quirky yet strangely grounded Nothing About Us Without Us Is For Us, a public art event led by Matt Baker and TS Beall, which will see (or hear) attempts to hurl language from one side of the river to the other by means of obsolescent technology.
