Twenty Five Percent Extra

An exhibition from 2nd year Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art organised entirely outwith the institution.

The Glasgow School of Art Mackintosh building burned in 2014. This pushed a section of the school to the Tontine building on the other side of the city, further dividing an already disparate school of fine art. This event catalysed the culture of expansion championed by current director Tom Inns and predecessor Seona ‘the Reid Building’ Reid. While the school aims to grow the student body 25% by 2018, no efforts have been made to increase per capita staffing or studio space, and increased fees are used to fund vanity projects. Read Reid. In response to this, second year fine art students are putting on an end of year show to foster relationships, collaboration and discussion between departments; to unify the school of fine art; and to provide a stronger voice through which to challenge the art school’s embrace of consumption, expansion and growth. There are 125 of us. We approached the school for funding and support in organising this exhibition. These requests were denied. As such, with support from the student union and WAVEparticle we have organised a show at the Laurieston Arches, Cleland Lane, G5 9DS. It will open on 10th June 6-9pm with an after-party at those same arches 9pm till late. It will be open over the weekend of the 11th & 12th June. We believe the school should be self-critical. We believe the school should be self-organising. We believe first and foremost that the school should be supporting its students. We are the school. We invite all to attend.
