Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art presents Stephen Sutcliffe: Work from the Collection, an exhibition by the Glasgow-based artist Stephen Sutcliffe.
This is the first time five new acquisitions of the artist’s work, purchased by Glasgow Museums in 2013, will go on show together. Two further works, loaned by Stephen Sutcliffe, will also be on display.
Stephen Sutcliffe: Work from the Collection presents three videos, three wall drawings and two photographs. It opens to the public on Friday 22 September 2017 in Gallery 3.
Sutcliffe creates film collages from an extensive personal archive of broadcast, sound, images and spoken word recordings he has collected since childhood. The appropriation and reimaging of this original material is present throughout his films, drawings and photographs. The exhibition reflects on aspects of culture and identity, expanding upon recurring themes in Sutcliffe’s work: self-doubt, anxiety and class.
Stephen Sutcliffe: Work from the Collection follows on from two other major commissions for the artist this year: No End to Enderby at the Whitworth Gallery, part of the Manchester Art Festival and Sex Symbols in Sandwich Signs at the Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh until 30 September.
Stephen Sutcliffe: Work from the Collection opens Gallery 3, GoMA on Friday 22 September 2017. For more information visit www.glasgowmuseums.com
