Gordon Douglas - Black Box Take Stock
August to December 2018
For our 40th anniversary Scottish artist Gordon Douglas has spent the past year researching Travelling Gallery's archive and accompanying us on tour to create an exhibition about us, for you!
Gordon will create a new film installation exploring all of the places Travelling Gallery has visited, from Lerwick to Dumfries and Renfrew to Dunbar. The film will not only explore the diverse Scottish landscape but will incorporate live feeds from outside the bus so visitors can create their own interplay. Alongside the film, there will be experimental drawings charting Travelling Gallery's journey through its speed and distance. Overall, the finished exhibition will create a playful installation in whihc the history of Travelling Gallery and the associated tropes of bus travel - the passengers, design and movement are imaginatively presented.
The exhibition will tour throughout Scotland from late August to December. Venues will be added to the Tour Dates and Locations page once confirmed.
