Relay

About Relay

Relay presents three consecutive group shows featuring a diverse group of graduate artists from the Glasgow School of Art. Re-examining the group show dynamic, each group of artists have the opportunity to ‘relay’ ideas between each other and then pass the baton to the next. Over the course of three weeks, each show presents new configurations of artists from the cohort, sparking new conversations between the works.

Art school end of year shows can present an excess of work from many months or years of study: the result can be overwhelming for both artist and viewer. Afterwards, the artist may find their way of working and access to resources has changed. Relay gives the artists space to run with their ideas.
Ten months after graduating, forty-three artists from the MLitt Fine Art programme return to participate in Relay, a self-organised show at Glasgow’s Tramway. Each show presents artists from various disciplines presenting new ways of working and developments in their practice. In this way, the public can see the Relay between art school to the cultural life of Glasgow and beyond.

“Relay is about working as an artist, how you exchange ideas with other artists and relaying them to people who see the work. So the theme is passing on ideas developed at art school, sharing a sort of energy and contributing to the culture of where you live and the wider world. It’s hard to transition from art school to the world and there is always the possibility of ‘dropping the baton’ while attempting to pass on your message, through misunderstanding or distraction, although the point is that we can always pick it up again and go forward.” – Ed Bruce, organiser and participating artist
