An exhibition of sculptures by David MacDiarmid and paintings by Kate Palmer that seeks to avoid resolution, using materials and geometry to create a suggestive object or language. MacDiarmid creates forms that are both lacking in and suggestive of a purpose, while Palmer’s lines of paint could refer to inner psychological experiences or simply be a form of abstract notation.
1-24 March 2018, Arthouse1, 45 Grange Road, London SE1.

Love Without Limits
Richard Taylor‘s two-channel audio installation uses a fictionalised narrative and setting to reference a period in Scottish and military history when sodomy was used as a way of generating power over captives. Told by four characters, the work ‘also challenges views on anxieties felt by individuals who exist in close-knit communities’ today. It was created and further developed during residencies at Hospitalfield, Arbroath and Market Gallery, Glasgow in 2017 and is accompanied by a publication with contributions from Taylor, Natalia Masewicz, Leo Plumb, William Joys and Sarah Forrest. Presentation times: 1.10pm, 1.35pm, 2pm, 2.25pm, 2.50pm.
Monday 26 February 2018, 4th Floor, Tontine Building, Glasgow School of Art, 20 Trongate, Glasgow G1 5NA.
