Thank you very much to everyone who came along to the launch of the Moving Image Season in Gallery 1 with the collection works by Katy Dove (1970 -2015) – Motorhead (2002), Luna (2004), Stop It (2006), and Sooner (2007). We were really touched by all the feedback from her family, friends, peers and visitors to the gallery.
The exhibition runs until 25 May 2015 and there is a new essay on Katy Dove’s work from Kirsteen Macdonald, which you can access here Moving Image Season: Katy Dove, essay by Kirsteen Macdonald, © Kirsteen Macdonald and the artist’s estate, 2015
GoMA would like to thank Kirsteen for her work on this excellent essay on Katy Dove’s work in Glasgow Museums’ collection and the designer Kirsty McBride, who designed the online and print versions of the essay.
That Katy Dove’s work opens the Moving Image Season as part of the upcoming exhibition ‘Ripples on the Pond’ — an ambitious and emotionally expressive GoMA project — is testament to the vibrant lyricism of Dove’s work and its capacity to build associative and symphonic links to diverse creative activities: animation, music, collage and a key aspect of both her practice and ‘Ripples on the Pond’: collaboration.
