Curated by Michelle Stewart

Artists : Adrienn Pesti, Ailsa Morrant,Astrid Jaroslawsky, Caitlin Hegney, Rachel Hardie and Michelle Stewart.


An observation of commonality through diversity that emerges from shared experience.

Six emerging artists have gathered in the shifting milieu of Scotland’s largest city and spent a year working alongside one another in the Glasgow School of Art, Artist in Residence program. Each with a clear focus in mind and a personal direction to navigate and each bringing their own experiences and perspectives. From a deep ancestral belonging in the Glasgow Arts and comfortable familiarity of an adopted home to fresh eyes on an old city, these artists all have a way of interpreting this place that echoes the ingenuity and innovation of the Scots. With daily visual cues from a city that boasts an architectural tenacity of the ages, an undercurrent of resilience and strength of character embodies their work.

Each of the artists are recently graduated and have been accepted into the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) Artist in Residence (AiR) 2018-2019 program. Still within the supportive environment of the GSA but each taking a step towards an independent arts practice these artists are working hard to explore and define themselves in their work. The surrounding environment of Glasgow city and the renewal, yet again, of the beloved Mackintosh Building are reflected in the pieces developed during their tenure. The Artists are Adrienn Pesti, Ailsa Morrant, Astrid Jaroslawsky, Caitlin Hegney, Rachel Hardie and Michelle Stewart.
