All MFA participants and core tutors Erik Hagoort, Thomas Bakker plus invited guest tutor Iede Reckman spent a good time in Glasgow last april, 2016. We did studio visits with our colleagues of the Glasgow School of Art MFA, visited Market Gallery for a meetup, Sculpture Studio’s Glasgow and much more.
An important part of the trip was the presentation and event at House for an Art Lover in Glasgow. HFAAL generously hosted us in- and outside of the exhibition space, allowing experiment and working in-and with the moment as it presented itself to us. After the event, the manifestation of Glasgow International opened. Every venue in town was packed with exhibitions, talks and events.
Our trip was aimed at exploring a new place by also giving, contributing to it in making. In the video above you can get a glimpse of how that idea turned into The Only Rule is Work. Thanks to all involved for making it a special experience; participants, tutors, Iede Reckman, Gemma Mannion (House for an Art Lover), Conor Cooke (Market Gallery), John Calcutt (Glasgow School of Art) and their MFA participants, and all others involved.
