This exhibition of new sculpture and painting by Cathy Wilkes responds to issues of war and conflict. The Hunterian, curated by Dominic Paterson, follows a special presentation of the work in the artist’s studio in St. Aloysius Hall in Springburn which will be open to the public in May. The exhibition is influenced by Cathy’s childhood in Northern Ireland, and by histories and experiences of violence not usually given expression within official representations of war.

The exhibition takes place in the context of Glasgow International, Scotland’s biennial festival of contemporary art. The 2024 programme includes projects spanning exhibitions and performances, durational screenings, public interventions, community organising, frameworks for collective learning, and radio broadcasts. Many of the projects in Glasgow International 2024 have either grown out of—or generate—long-term commitments to collective work with peers and friends; to communities both local and global; to areas of research; to modes of making; and to fugitive ways of listening, remembering, thinking and being.

Participating artists include Delaine Le Bas, Martin Beck, Enzo Camacho & Ami Lien, Reiko Goto Collins, Ashanti Harris, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Mina Heydari-Waite, Rudy Kanhye & Lauren La Rose, Alexis Kyle Mitchell, Susan Philipsz, Cameron Rowland, Joey Simons, Tako Taal, Camara Taylor and Wei Zhang; presented by arts organisations and artist-led initiatives including CCA, The Common Guild, Celine, Cento, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow Print Studio, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Glasgow Women’s Library, GoMA, The Hunterian Art Gallery, Ivory Tars, Listen Gallery, Market Gallery, The Modern Institute, Offline, Rumpus Room, Platform, Street Level Photoworks, SWG3 and Tramway.
