Skypark donates pop-up space to Glasgow International 2021

Skypark has donated one of its areas to visual arts festival Glasgow International.

A pop-up art space has been created at one of the city’s leading business locations.

Skypark has donated one of its areas to visual arts festival Glasgow International. 

The space will feature exhibitions by a number of artists as part of the Across the City Programme that takes art into the wider community and beyond traditional galleries.

Glasgow International festival of contemporary visual art takes place from June 11 to 27.

The festival’s theme is Attention, inviting us to think about how we pay attention to things and people around us, and the place of art in this. 

At Skypark, an exhibition titled 'Don’t Let the Bastards Grind You Down’ will feature drawings, paintings and sculptures by Liv Fontaine, Paul Kindersley and Huhtamaki Wab.

In addition, the space will feature work by Andrew Sim exploring queer love, relationships and community building.

Jenny Tipton, artist and event maker at Cabbage, said: “We’re so excited to be opening this exhibition in Glasgow, especially after such a long and difficult year. 

“I am pleased Cabbage was able to support each artist to develop new work through its resilience programme, which means almost all of the work in the show has not been exhibited before.

“We look forward to welcoming you, safely, from 11 June and thank Glasgow International, Creative Scotland and Skypark for their support.”

The festival comprises over 70 exhibitions and events, performances and talks over 30 spaces across the city and online, showcasing work by over 100 artists. 

We’re so excited to be opening this exhibition in Glasgow, especially after such a long and difficult year'

Strategic lettings advisor Angela Higgins of Resonance Capital said: “At last, as we begin to open up again following current guidelines, we are proud to share our business location with Glasgow International for the third time and as major supporters of the arts. 

“The artists will get the opportunity to see and show their art to the public as one of the UK’s biggest art festivals puts Glasgow at the forefront.”
