CCA Annex is an online project space that serves as a digital extension to our physical galleries.
As well as hosting live events, Annex is a repository of interviews, films, essays, publications, performance, residencies, talks and games. Projects are drawn from across CCA’s programming strands and also feature new works specially commissioned for Annex.
Annex launched with a new film by Anti-cool, LUNA, alongside the first issue of a new commissioned bi-annual CCA publication. Small Black Reptile Volume 1 features essays from Katya Garcia-Anton, Moira Jeffrey and Sadie Plant.
As part of our exhibition with Glasgow School of Art, ambi, Raisa Kabir presented her new moving portrait and sculpture work on Annex. Gather your spools, let your hair down for me. Gently. Here. Undo responds to the textile geographies of labour between Kashmiri woven shawls, Paisley, Scotland, textile archives, and South Asian diasporic migration and displacement.
For Soot Breath / Corpus Infinitum, Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva compiled an archive of interviews, essays, songs and fragments to accompany the exhibition. This body of research expands on and explores the themes and ideas that the exhibition film provokes.
Winnie Herbstein's exhibition Dampbusters in August was accompanied by the original Dampbusters play from the Easthall Theatre Group in 1990, and housing activist Cathy McCormack's films War Without Bullets (1995) and Evening Calls (1993).
New projects and events will be added over the coming year, and feature on the landing page in a newspaper-style format before being archived.
