''Over Over Over''
Artist-Curator Cedric Tai invited five Glasgow-based artists, Tessa Lynch, Francis McKee, John Nicol, Rosie O'Grady, and Ross Sinclair, to Detroit for an exhibition that investigates what it means to be an artist, creating and sustaining their practices in these cities.
This project is rooted in Tai's introduction to the artistic community of Glasgow, which he saw as having similarities to Detroit's developing art scene. Glasgow could serve as an ideal model for artists to re-imagine Detroit's potential. He worked to learn as much as possible by attending meetings of grassroots organizations (such as GalGael), being a part of the AHRC funded project "The Glasgow Miracle: Materials for Alternative Histories" and leading walking tours through the city of Glasgow. Through these actions he met the five artists in this exhibition, as co-workers, peers and collaborators.
