Gordon Douglas - BLACK BOX TAKE STOCK
18 August - December 2018
Travelling Gallery is pleased to present a new solo exhibition Black Box Take Stock by Glasgow-based artist Gordon Douglas. To mark Travelling Gallery's 40th birthday, Gordon was invited to explore our archives and travel with the bus in order to produce an exciting new exhibition for our Autumn 2018 tour. Gordon developed an interest in the operation and upkeep of the vehicle and, as a performance artist, what acts of maintenance go into performing the narrative, socila collaborations and technologies of the gallery.
For venues we will be visiting see the Current Tour Dates and Locations Page.
