Gallery artist Claire Barclay is to have new work in a group show called 'function/dysfunction. Glasgow Art Centre' at the Neues Museum in Nuremberg, Germany. The exhibition will showcase work by artists trained at Glasgow art schools. Since the nineties the Scottish capital has evolved into a vibrant center for the visual arts. The focal points of this development are the renowned Academy of Fine Arts in Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art from where eminent contemporary artists such as Douglas Gordon, Martin Boyce and Claire Barclay have emerged. The selection of artists for this exhibition reflects both the development of a strong Scottish art center over several generations, as well as international artists who are influenced by the Glasgow art scene today.
The works will be installed behind the curved glass façade of the Neues Museum in Nuremberg which has been designed specially for the exhibition and will be visible around the clock from the outside.
The exhibition will unveil a new body of work by Claire Barclay including a large scale sculptural installation and a selection of new works on paper.
On Thursday 30 January 2014, Claire Barclay will give a talk on her work as part of the Neues Museum artist lecture series.
The exhibition runs from 18 October 2013 until 9 February 2014.
