The Poppies exhibition, by artists Max Brand and Joannne Robertson, is on at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow until 11 June 2017. This debut collaboration features paintings, sculptures and a musical work from Berlin based Brand and London based Robertson.
I wasn’t too keen on various clothes rails around the exhibition. Clothes installations seems to be popular at the moment. I saw one at the Louise Bourgeois exhibition at the Switch House at the Tate Modern in London last Summer, and another recently in which all the walls of a room were hung with clothes at the Centre Pompidou in Malaga during my recent visit to the Spanish city.
I did like the vivid colours of the wall hung canvases and the floor and wall murals in the Poppies exhibition.
I spotted some carrier bags in the materials used to construct the sculptures.
My favourite part of the Poppies exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow were the window decorations.
There were also some painted sheets suspended from the ceiling.
I have thought about doing painting some murals on the walls at home. I suppose that if I used pastels, it wouldn’t be too hard to wash the mural off the wall, if it didn’t turn out successfully.
The Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow is free to enter, It’s open seven days a week. But check the opening hours before visiting. I almost got caught out visiting on Sunday morning, as I assumed that the Gallery would open at 10am, but it’s 11am on Sundays and Fridays. Closing time is 5pm, except on Thursdays, when it’s 8pm.
