Glasgow International 2014: emerging artists to watch out for

Lauren Hall, Still State Change, 2013

Featuring Hardeep Pandhal, Lauren Hall, Jay Mosher, Gabriele Beveridge, Lucy Clout, Kate Cooper, Anne Haaning and Marianna Simnett

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art’s MFA programme last year, Hardeep Pandhal (right) has enjoyed an increasingly high profile. He was selected for last year’s New Contemporaries (Bloomberg’s showcase of graduating artists) and was awarded this year’s Glasgow Open Bursary. His GI exhibition, JoJoBoys, consists of a film and series of lamp post banners exploring colonialist readings of the Camp Coffee logos, to be installed along Charlotte Street, the site of the company’s original factory.

Also a graduate of last year’s MFA programme is Canadian artist Jay Mosher, who collaborates with current GSA student Lauren Hall on Comfortably Warm, a site-specific response to the city’s tenement housing.

Over at SWG3, the group show La Chose Encadrée includes works by several artists including Gabriele Beveridge, who has exhibited internationally since graduating from the Slade. The show, curated by Camille Le Houezec and Joey Villemont, explores the idea of the frame.

Several GI exhibitions at CCA this year showcase work from the moving image artists who were shortlisted for the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards, which is open to artists in the first five years of their practice. Lucy Clout, Kate Cooper, Anne Haaning and Marianna Simnett have all explored themes of identity, visibility and posterity in What Will They See Of Me?, first exhibited at the Jerwood in London.
