Part of Festival 2018 - the cultural programme accompanying the European Championships at venues across Scotland.
Multi-site exhibition New Order, Other Spaces explores the gymnastic body across photography, moving image and installation, presented in Glasgow and Perth. A solo presentation from artist Jo Longhurst, with new commissions produced in collaboration with gymnasts of all ages and responding to archival research.
Curated by Tiffany Boyle and Iliyana Nedkova, this research is made manifest through Longhurst’s new moving image work, and responses to the life and work of dancer, choreographer and teacher Margaret Morris. New Order, Other Spaces engages with ideas of perfection, gender, gesture, and inter-generational understandings of movement.
New Order, Other Spaces runs in Perth from Thu 2 Aug - Thu 22 Nov.
Opening preview, with performance intervention, will take place on Sat 4 Aug 2-4pm.
Curated by Tiffany Boyle and Iliyana Nedkova. Produced by the artist, curators and Horsecross Arts. Supported by Glasgow 2018 European Championships Festival Fund.
