Warehouse of Horrors

ContemporaryArtETC… attended the opening of the Warehouse of Horrors at the ++44 141 Gallery in Glasgow on Saturday night and encountered a number of familiar and in some cases rather spooky faces.

The exhibition, curated by ex Telford Fine Art student and ContemporayArtETC… visiting lecturer Benjamin Fallon, brings together a range of artists who share a common interest in horror. Newly commissioned works by  Chris Walker, Catherine Street and our very own Alan Holligan sit confidently in the company of international art stars such as Mike Kelly, Paul McCarthy and Olaf Breuning.

‘Warehouse of Horrors’ is one half of an innovative exchange project between the Embassy Gallery in Edinburgh and +44 141 Gallery, which sees the Glasgow based gallery bring ‘Way Out is The Way Out’ featuring seven artists, predominantly painters, curated by Jamie Kenyon.

Occupied: ContemporaryArtETC students hold festival exhibition.


“Occupied” is an exhibition featuring  work by 3 of ContemporaryArtETC’s current students. The exhibition will feature new and recent work produced during their first year on the ground breaking course at Edinburgh’s Telford College.

The work covers a range of themes including;  journey, protection and the notion of celebrity. Alongside these will be new works by the artists inspired by the current economic climate and associated difficulties of occupation, appropriation and negotiation.

Alan Holligan Curriculum Leader for the Contemporay Art Practice Course at Telford said “I am delighted that the students have shown such initiative and determination to get their work and ideas out in the public domain during their summer break. It takes a great deal of confidence and organisational skill to pull of an entirely self initiated project like this and it is testiment to the callibre of student and to their learnig over the last year.”

The art works will occupy the un-let retail space for 1 week between 18th-22nd of August at the height of the Edinburgh Festival season. The work will cover a broad range of disciplines including, drawing, painting, sculpture and film.

A private view of the work will be held on Monday the 17th August 7pm – 9pm.
