Introduction, ‘Cabbages in an Orchard: Graham Fagen’ publication

A new publication, designed by Owned and Operated accompanies Graham Fagen’s exhibition ‘Cabbages in an Orchard’, Reid Gallery, The Glasgow School of Art. Download my introduction here. The publication is full colour, and contains commissioned essays by Graham Fagen and Johnny Rodger. The exhibition and publication are part of GENERATION, a programme across venues in Scotland led by National Galleries and Glasgow Life, looking at 25 years of contemporary art in Scotland. The publication is £10 and can be ordered from GSA Shop.

I invited Graham Fagen to look at Charles Rennie Mackintosh works held in The Glasgow School of Art Archives & Collections, in order to find the common ground between his work and Mackintosh’s. The resulting new body of work, plus three early original Mackintosh watercolours, from The Magazine, a DIY publication Mackintosh worked on with his student peers, runs in the Reid Gallery until 29 August 2014.
