By Non Place Collective
Non Place Collective presents: From Other Spaces, an exhibition and performance by Mousa Alnana.
“The space of non-place creates neither singular identity nor relations; only solitude, and similitude” – Marc Augé
Mousa is a painter investigating the role of art in revolutions and storytelling. He was born and raised in Homs and has exhibited his work in Syria, Egypt, Greece and Scotland. Currently based in Glasgow, Mousa holds a master’s degree from the Glasgow School of Art and runs creative workshops engaging the local community.
The Non Place Collective examines how artists respond individually to a place of transience whilst retaining the authorship of a collective. Many artists are taking ownership of where and how they exhibit their work. The Collective offers an opportunity to work collaboratively in non-place locations and aims to facilitate refugee artists, giving primary focus to the voices of artists from underrepresented minorities.
Between 17-26 June, Non Place Collective will showcase the work of refugee artists based in Scotland.
The Space, 257 London Rd (Bain Street side), Glasgow, G40 1PE
The pop-up exhibition can be viewed from the Non Place Collective studio window on Bain Street between 11am and 6pm from Friday 17 until Sunday 26 June
A live performance will take place on Sunday 19th of June, from 6-9pm
About Non-Place Collective:
Non Place Collective is an ever-expanding group of artists founded by Julie Lane, Lisa Sanders, Robert Oros, and Marina Iodice in 2019. The rationale for the Non Place Collective is how individually artists respond to a place of transience whilst retaining the authorship of a collective.
How we network is fundamental to the growth of many artists. Non-Place Collective aims to facilitate refugee artists based in Scotland and Wales, giving them the opportunity to develop and exhibit work. Equality, diversity and inclusion are key elements throughout the process, giving primary focus to the voices of the artists from the underrepresented minorities.
