Reception 1.8.15, 2nd Thursday, 6-8 pm
Museum for an Imagined City is a collection of impressions and ideas of Seattle by a group of artists who have never been there. Works stem from factual research, personal imagined histories and ideas from popular culture, and explore the city’s culture, weather, people, past and future. The aim of the museum is to see what happens when ideas of the city are confronted by the city itself, and its inhabitants.
The featured artists all have connections to Glasgow, Scotland, and include Claire Biddles (curator), Sighle Bhreathnach-Cashell, Sinéad Bhreathnach-Cashell, Lorraine Hamilton, Kornelia Remø Klokk, Richard Martin, Jen Sykes, Helen Tubridy, Thomas Wells and James Stephen Wright.
