hubCAP DO OR DIE Events Programme

An enormous thank you to eveyone who attended and participated in this weeks hubCAP Gallery events held in response to the exhibition DO OR DIE by artist Samantha Dick.

Tuesday’s In Conversation with Samatha and CAPetc lecturer Alan Holligan provided and opportunity for the audience to hear about Samantha’s journey through the Art & Design dept at Edinburgh College, Glasgow School of Art before returning to the college as Artist In Residence last August.

On Wenesday the invited panel chaired by CAPetc lecturer Jennie Temple considered the themes raised through a series of presentations centred on their individual practice as artist, performers, researchers and educators. The Q&A that followed was considered, lively and informative for all and sets the bar very high for future events by the hubCAP team

Panelists:

  • Quinn Garrison: Doctoral Researcher at the University of Edinburgh examining the intersection between Posthumanism and Queer Theory
  • Oskar Kirk Hansen: Mutli Media and drag Artist
  • Bethany Parsons: Equalities Officer, Edinburgh College

hubCAP Gallery Opens

Edinburgh’s newest artist run space opens at Edinburgh College Granton Campus.

Developed as a core element of our new Professional Practice and Exhibition programme on the HND Contemporary Art Practice Course we were delighted to launch hubCAP Gallery with an exhibition of 2D work by all the current participants of the course.

The launch was a fantastic success and and was well attended by freinds, family, students and colleagues from across the college but in particular it was  fantastic to see so many of the CAPalumni family coming from as far afeild as Dundee, Galashiels, Bathgate and Glasgow.

hubCAP is the first in a series of initiatives in development that will provide CAP students with real world experiences that will enable them to gain key knowledge and skills to identify and progress in their developing area of contemporary art practice and beyond. Additional initiatives will include campus based opportunities including; a lecturer shadowing / metoring programme, library placements with the Art & Design Subject Specialist and art journalism / marketing along with external placement opportunities with our external partners.

The gallery adopts a model of Artist Run spaces and is organised and facilitated by a selected committee of current HND CAP students who will develop and deliver a programme of exhibitions by emerging and early career artists and complimented by a and events and workshops programme.
