Wed 18 April — Fri 27 April 2018
In Kind is a research project by visual artists Janie Nicoll and Ailie Rutherford for Glasgow International 2018.
The project will map the hidden economies of the festival and the “below the water-line” economy of the arts; charting the unseen and unaccounted for efforts that enable the festival to take place, exploring unpaid labour, mutual support, favours and volunteer hours that go into making Glasgow International.
The notion of the economy “below the water-line” is taken from the metaphor of The Economy As An Iceberg, by feminist economists JK Gibson-Graham as a means of describing the diverse economic practices and unseen labour in our economy.
For the duration of the festival the artists will operate from a peripatetic information kiosk moving from CCA to Platform and Trongate103, acting as a focus point to collate data and a multi-media visual display unit.
