‘Genea!’, says Marauder
This exhibition at Crownpoint Studios in Glasgow by artist and writer Richard Taylor, accompanied by Jack Marshall and Albert Taylor, includes video, sound, slide projection, sculpture, photography and performance. In recent months Taylor has been working with 35mm slides, including a collection ‘stolen from his dad’, which were shot by his grandfather in the early 1980s. Taken before Taylor was born, the slides represent a ‘conundrum of threaded materials for unearthing ancestral clarity and pursuing resurrection’. The opening event on Friday 27 September 2019 includes a performance starting at 8pm.
27-29 September 2019, Crownpoint East studios, 142 Crownpoint Road, Bridgeton, Glasgow, G40 2AE. www.a-n.co.uk/events/genea-says-marauder

The Last Full Measure of Devotion
This commemorative installation by ceramist and academic Kate Wilson reflects on the Afghanistan conflict. ‘The Last Full Measure of Devotion’ consists of individually thrown, porcelain twin-handled mugs, a design historically associated with commemoration or to mark life’s rites of passage. They are accompanied by kneeling cushions, hand-stitched with lines from ‘The Cost’, a poem written by a second world war veteran, which act as ‘a metaphorical invitation to quietly consider each individual’.
Until 16 November 2019, Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury, SP1 3AJ. www.a-n.co.uk/events/the-last-full-measure-of-devotion-by-dr-kate-wilson
‘Re: birth’ is the second annual members show of Spilt Milk, an artist-led social enterprise whose mission is to promote the work of artists who are mothers. The exhibition showcases work by over 40 members, exploring representations of birth and the maternal body, contemporary narratives of the mother and child relationship, and abstract reflections on the domestic realm and adoption.
September 28 – October 12, Gallery One, Edinburgh Palette, St Margarets House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh EH7 6AE. www.a-n.co.uk/events/re-birth-spilt-milk-members-show-19
Betwixt and Between
Five artists show landscape paintings in this exhibition at Arthouse1, which takes its title from anthropologist Victor Turner’s 1967 essay, Betwixt and Between: The Liminal Period in Rites de Passage. The works here explore landscapes that are both ‘literal and suggestive of psychological or sensory thresholds’.
3-25 October 2019, Arthouse1, Grange Road 45, London SE1 3BH. www.a-n.co.uk/events/betwixt-and-between
