GoMA are delighted to be working with GI2018 again and the new Director Richard Parry for a stunning show in Gallery 1. Cellular World: Cyborg-Human-Avatar-Horror is a group exhibition featuring works by nine internationally renowned artists that introduces the key thematic concerns of this year’s Glasgow International Director’s Programme.

We live in a world where technology plays a large and changing role in everyday life. In an age of social media, most of us will have avatars – versions of ourselves – online, prompting us to question how we are represented and how we represent ourselves. At the same time, we are at a historical moment where the future frequently appears as a precipice between utopia and dystopia.

The works on show explore questions of identity and individual and collective consciousness at a time of prolific social change and uncertainty, when reality can often seem more like science fiction.

Artists: Joseph Buckley, Jamie Crewe, Jesse Darling, Cécile B. Evans, Lynn Hershman-Leeson, E. Jane, Sam Keogh, Mai-Thu Perret, John Russell

We are currently installing and the exhibition will open on 20 April and run until 7 October 2018.
