SO GLAD
Market Gallery, Glasgow
February 8—March 20, 2020

Market Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Glasgow-based artist Aman Sandhu. SO GLAD is an installation of drawing, sculpture, and text-based works that mediate feelings of skepticism about how bodies of colour are consumed in the name of representation to find solidarity and healing within that nervous terrain. Through improvisation, absurd satire, and anecdotes of failed ancestral calls, Sandhu seeks strategies for exiting a practice of refusal that is contingent on a relationship to a dominant hegemony. SO GLAD will unfold through a series of events and interventions.

Sat February 29 | 7 pm
 

Performances by Aman Sandhu and Düsseldorf based artist, Soya Arakawa.
 

Fri March 20 |Closing Event |6 – 9 pm (CANCELLED due to COVID-19 pandemic)
 

NEVERENDING STORY with Camara Taylor
