NEW VENUE Cabbage Junkspace: Tap for Sound
Thu 9 August 2018
This event has moved to The Seamore Cinema, 304 Maryhill Road, Glasgow, G20 7YE.
Following the fire at Glasgow School of Art and the O2 ABC music venue, the Centre for Contemporary Arts remains within the cordoned area in Garnethill. At this time, there is no set date for re-entry, and the centre expects to remain closed for the duration of July and August.
We are working with our programme partners who had scheduled events throughout this period. Details of new venues and cancellations are here.
Cabbage presents Junkspace: Tap for Sound, a screening event of moving image exploring the spaces inhabited by artists online, post internet culture and the divergence of sound and image.
The programme brings together a group of artists who communicate their practice through screen and sound, occupying digital platforms with fictionalised personas and altered mannerisms.
Located within digital non spaces, several of the artists are captured as a single figure caught between a monochrome background and the camera lens. Music, humour and the alter ego are utilised to communicate with the audience in the form of make up tutorials, interviews, lip syncs and gag reels. The artist is positioned central within the work, appearing in distorted fragments through characterisations, shifting appearance and voice.
BYOB - please feel free to bring your favourite tipple along with a small donation of £2 for corkage. A cash bar offering wine will also be available. All proceeds go toward supporting future Cabbage events and The Seamore Neighbourhood Cinema.
Cabbage is a screening programme based in Glasgow, curated by JJ Tipton. Cabbage considers the screening space as a place of live event, rejecting the format of the academic screening in favour of screening as a space for theatre and exhibition.
Cabbage would like to thank The Seamore Neighbourhood Cinema for giving this event a new home, and CCA for their continued support during difficult circumstances. x
