Thanks & Event Jurors

We would like to thank everyone who submitted to this year’s event!

We are in the process of sorting all the submissions to present to the Jury and we will have the results of their decisions shortly. Each approved submission also needs also to be approved by GSA Facilities and worked into the evening timetable, so please be patient while we put the evening together.

This year's Jury is:

Giles Bailey: Is a performance and installation artists based in Glasgow, and a graduate of GSA's Environmental Art Department, 2005. He is also actively involved with Glasgow's Transmission Gallery.

Joanne Tatham: Graduated from the MFA Programme 1995 and  works collaboratively with Tom O'Sullivan. They were selected to represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2005, and have had solo exhibitions at Tramway, Tate Britain, Studio Voltaire, London and Galerie Francesca Pia, Bern, to name a few. The duo has been involved in numerous group shows internationally. Joanne is a visiting lecturer at GSA. 'We consider our work as being in a tradition of conceptual art; its about questioning the parameters of art, what contemporary art is, what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. We're interested in making art that is very public; art that has a physical and intellectual effect on the viewer - whether you like it or not, you have to engage with it.'
(Tatham & O'Sullivan interviewed by Will Bradley, Berlin 2001).

Graham Fagen: Studied Sculpture at GSA before completing a masters in Kent, he has had numerous shows throughout the world including Tramway, DCA, GoMA, Tart Contemporary - San Francisco, Nuove Icona - Venice, and many more. "Fagen works mainly with photographic or interactive installations, often including printed scripts and videos. His work, at first, may seem to be fictional but on closer examination, actually deals with social, historical and cultural accuracies." British Art Show 5 catalogue, p54

Originally from the United States, he received his BFA from the Savannah College of Art & Design.
