A live performance, fabricating and multiplying the techniques of religion at various locations.

We think we are free, but we are kept out of the garden by our own fear and desire in relation to what we think to be the goods of our life (Joseph Campbell). Praying is an act that seeks to activate a deliberate communication, a communication to the higher with the aim and concern to render. Meanwhile we are devoured by the big monster of commerce and maybe re-created as stubborn pupils of some faith? Where do these rituals and structures sit within the human evolution today?  'At the same time they never cease trying to escape from what they imagine themselves to be. Their religions are attempts to be rid of a freedom they have never possessed' (John Grey, Straw Dogs).

Thu 24 May Private Views: Lis Rhodes & Antonia Hirsch

BOX OFFICE 0845 330 3501 
Feature article
Lis Rhodes 'Dissonance and Disturbance'.

Private View Thu 24 May 7 - 9pm

Exhibition runs Fri 25 May - Sun 24 June.

Tramway 2

Admission free.

Since the 1970s, Lis Rhodes has been making radical and experimental films that challenge the viewer to reconsider film as a medium of communication and presentation of image, language, and sound. The exhibition, which takes its title from Lis Rhodes' text Dissonance and Disturbance, presents films that encompass performance, photography, composition, writing and political commentary.

Films from throughout Rhodes' career are presented here at Tramway, from Dresden Dynamo (1972) and Light Reading(1978), to more recent works, such as the Hang on a Minuteseries (1983-1985) A Cold Draft (1988), In the Kettle (2010) and Whitehall (2012).

In Dresden Dynamo (1972), a film made without a camera, the physical marks made by Rhodes onto the celluloid stretch where the projector reads the optical soundtrack, resulting in sound drawings in which what is heard is seen and what is seen is heard. Light Reading (1978), has been described as a new direction for film, a technical and aesthetic tour de force of rapid fire editing, myriad techniques and a text which both manipulates and questions the structure of language and representation. Rhodes is presenting her most recent works In the Kettle (2010) and Whitehall (2012), together with A Cold Draft (1988) within a two screen installation for which she is creating a shared soundtrack.

ImageAntonia Hirsch 'Komma (After Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun)'

Private View Thu 24 May 7-9pm

Tramway 5

Exhibition runs Fri 25 May - Sun 1 July

Presented in an installation context, Komma (after Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun) is a 16mm film installation based on Hollywood script writer Dalton Trumbo's seminal anti-war novel. The project re-imagines Dalton Trumbo's work through its idiosyncrasy – the book was printed entirely without comma's.

Set around the time of World War I, the novel with its—then particularly inconvenient—anti-war message, was first published in 1939. The book came into true prominence during the Vietnam war era, after its author had re-emerged from McCarthyist blacklisting throughout the 1950s.

The central device of Trumbo's novel is the body of the protagonist, a young American soldier who, incredibly, has lost his face and both arms and legs during combat. Unable to see, speak, hear, smell, or act, he is fully conscious, but seemingly completely without agency. As he struggles to come to terms with his personal tragedy, he strains to communicate with 'the outside world.'

The entire book was written without commas, though all other punctuation conforms to established conventions. The term comma is derived from Greek 'komma', meaning 'something cut off.' The installation features a spoken word recording of the novel, white flashes in the film mark the location where commas in the text would of appeared according to the Chicago Style Manual.

The exhibition at Creative Scotland includes a number of prints of the Scottish acts he captured in the post-punk period - such as The Dreamboys (featuring Peter Capaldi - years before he learnt to swear and mutated into Malcolm Tucker - looking cute and wholesome as bow-tied front man of Glasgow band The Dreamboys, with favourite US late-night chat show host, Craig Ferguson on drums playing live at Glasgow School of Art), The Laughing Apple (Featuring Alan McGee who went on to form the mega successful Creation Records), Claire Grogan of Altered Images, The Bluebells and Billy Mackenzie, and a number of other luminaries of the pre-punk, new wave and post punk period, such as The Clash, Bowie, Specials AKA, Gil Scott-Heron, and the militant gay triumvirate of Jimmy Somerville, Tom Robinson and Andy Bell (shot before he went on to become a member of Erasure) as they march for homosexual equality.

Heading 1

SATURDAY 19th MAY, 7 - 9pm

(Gallery open THURS - SUN, 12 - 5pm)

Our annual graduate show THEY HAD FOUR YEARS showcases artists selected from the previous years Scottish Degree Show.

The 2012 edition will feature newly commmisioned works from CALVIN LAING, ROMANY DEAR & NEIL NODZAK 

CALVIN LAING (Edinburgh College of Art) focuses mainly on performance; looking at the potential of objects and situations.
Ideologically revolving around the concept of reporduction of performance, Laing is interested in playing with the perception of reality and creating false elements within reality.
Using himself as a ready-made object and interacting with the given environment, Laing will present new work that captures and preserves the visceral immediacy of a live performance as it is transferred into another medium.

Fascinated in the way we, as people, move, ROMANY DEAR (Glasgow School of Art) employs video and audio based works in an attempt to
choreograph the commonalities within the way we all move into something that could potentially be read as dance; creating a situation that heightens our
awareness of movement and encourages us all to 'move a little bit mor

NEIL NODZAK's (Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design) work is ultimately concerned with the intention of creating a visual representation of hypothetical spaces in constant flux.
Focusing on the idea of a real life representation of the hyper-optimistic vision/atmosphere seen in concept art and scale models,
Nozdak will present 'a real life version of something that should only ever have existed as an idea'.

TRAMWAY Artist Talk by Redmond Entwistle


BOX OFFICE 0845 330 3501 
Feature article
Redmond Entwistle will discuss his new film 'Walk-Through' which explores the role and value of art education today through the history of the seminal California Institute of the Arts.

Sat 12 May 4pm

Exhibition ends Sun 13 May

Walk-Through is a film installation which revisits the history of the pioneering art school where Entwistle studied in the late 90's, the California Institute of the Arts. Beginning as a tour of the campus, the film guides us through CalArts' history and the life of the school, from archive images of its design and construction, initiated by Walt Disney in the late 1960's to the present day.

Taking the narrative form of a guided tour, Walk-Throughexamines the school's mission, its place in art history, and its flexible architecture, which was designed to facilitate its democratic philosophy. Slowly, however, the tour drifts into a fictional recreation of the 'Post-Studio' class developed by influential artist and teacher Michael Asher in which, instead of analyzing work, a critique of the 'Post-Studio' class itself starts to evolve.

Walk-Through is co-commisioned by Tramway for Glasgow International Festival 2012, International Project Space, Birmingham and Cubbit Gallery, London
