I See Doors of Opportunity Where There Are No Doors
Taking its cue from the pamphlet, ‘Exhaustion et Exuberance’ by critic Jan Verwoert, this exhibition of existing and new works by David Sherry pivots on the pressure to perform in the knowledge economy, the contradictions defining success, and the disruptive effect of nonsense humour. After an opening performance by the artist, a comedic prop triggers an anthology of small-scale works, requiring the preposterous labour of audience and invigilators.
Presented by Falte Projects and curated by Giulia Colletti.
This exhibition is part of Civic Room Open, with MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) of The Glasgow School of Art and University of Glasgow Degree Show, is supported by Patricia Fleming Projects, and is sponsored by Cass Art.
