This Will Ruin Everything - Extension, Events and More! 27 Jul 2017

The current Gallery One exhibition “This Will Ruin Everything” celebrates a decade of work from Urban Art specialists, Recoat. If you’ve been lucky enough to visit already then you’ll have been able to see a variety of works from over forty Scottish and international designers, artists and makers.  

Despite only being here for a short time, this exhibition has proven exceptionally popular with visitors, therefore we are delighted to announce that it will be extended for one more week. The new closing date will be Sunday 6th August at 5pm.

We’ve received excellent feedback on the exhibition, including this  statement from the team at Impact Arts, who met with Amy from Recoat on their visit.

It was so amazing to stumble upon Recoat's brilliant exhibition with my young people from Barrhead. The range and message and questions behind all of the work you had on display was truly inspiring and motivating, and best of all- actually something the young people could interact with and take a great deal of inspiration from…. Museums and exhibitions are all too often something stuffy and unwelcoming to my students.... You however flipped that entire norm on its head and made my young people feel like they were the intended audience of the exhibition. They connected so much to you and the work-and it meant so much to us all.

As well as the exhibition itself Recoat has curated a varied events programme to further develop the themes of the exhibition.

This evening, 27th July, there will be a panel discussion hosted by Recoat discussing the blurring of design and art in contemporary creative practice. With a particular focus on the themes of function, value, ownership and elitism. Speakers will include Seonaid Daly (Director at Scottish Contemporary Art Network), Clive Gillman (Director of Creative Industries at Creative Scotland) and Lee Ivett (Architect Artist), France-Lise McGurn (Artist) and Julio Rolle/ 44 Flavours (Artist/ Designer).

There are still tickets left for this event here and they can also be purchased on the door this evening. For those who cannot attend the event it will be live streamed on YouTube, you can see last week’s Pecha Kucha talk here

There are also some tickets left for an afternoon of film screenings hand-picked by Recoat on Sunday 30th July. You’ll find further information on this here

We hope you will be able to pop along and see the exhibition while it’s still here and be able to join in with the events – either in-person or online!
