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
  • Megan Rudden: Artist & Mlitt Candidate Glasgow School of Art

Just back from the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) where our amazing Art & Design Subject Liaison Jennifer Ouson has a display of all our new acquisitions to the collection and the latest additions to the fabulous Zine Library!

I think its safe to say the collection at the Granton Campus is one of the best in any UK FE college! 

CAP Alumni Degree Show 2019

From final assessments, end of year exhibitions and alumni degree shows, late May / early June is a hectic time in CAPetc… land and this year has been no exception.  Anyway more of our 2019 graduating artists in our next post but for now lets have a look at our amazing alumni and their fantastic degree shows.

As you might know we have been offline for a while and there is a lot to catch up on, so much as we’d like to, there is little time to do an in depth review of the degree shows so please click on all the links below including the artists names for more info on the individuals practice. There are also links to press reviews and the official degree show pages.

Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art was our first and busiest stop with 4 alumni shows to see and a surprise visitor:

It was great to see the varied and fantastic work by Jek McAllister, Elena Cheltsova, Dulcie McConville and Cloud Tanadynska who all graduated from CAPetc… in 2016 along with surprise visitor Freya May now studying anthropology at the University of Edinburgh.

Talking of the capital, our next stop was Edinburgh College of Art where CAPetc… class of 2016 were represented by Magdalena Gunkowska , Eve Watson and Becca Tarrant.

On Friday it was over to Glasgow and former home of Stow Further Education College where this years Glasgow School of Art degree shows were the first occupants of the newly acquired and refurbished building. Only one 2016 graduate to see among the multiple floors of exhibitions but a great one it was by Samantha Dick

We didn’t finished there though as it was a quick hop over the border to catch the final shows by 2017 alumni Yvonne Meek, Lauren Wilson and Aimee McCallum at University of Cumbria.

An exhibition that brings together 20 Scottish-based artists including 12 former and current, Edinburgh College HND Contemporary Art Practice graduates, artist and residence and staff,  of different disciplines and backgrounds to collaborate in the creation of ten “Hawf ‘n’ Hawf” football scarfs. This project curated by artist Lewis Bissett, invites artists to revisit the medium used in his piece “K.W.A.M (ken wit a mean?)” from his solo show “BOAIS ANE”.
