Aman Sandhu | SO GLAD

February 8 – March 20 | Preview Sat Feb 8, 6 – 9 pm

Open Friday Sunday, 12 6 pm

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 scepticism 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.

Please see here for full press release.

Sat February 29 | 7 pm
