Cathy Wilkes

Hunterian Art Gallery
7 June-29 September 2024
Free entry

This exhibition of new work by Cathy Wilkes responds to issues of war and conflict and has been realised through the IWM 14-18 NOW Legacy Fund, a national partnership programme of artist commissions led by Imperial War Museums. 

In a practice that ranges across sculpture, painting and installation, artist Cathy Wilkes employs materials associated with everyday domestic life to consider profound subjective or social realities that cannot be fully expressed in words or images. The exhibition is influenced by Cathy's childhood in Northern Ireland, and by histories and experiences of violence not usually given expression within official representations of war.  

Following the exhibition at The Hunterian, the installation will be exhibited at Cathy's studio in St. Aloysius Parish Hall, Springburn. 

An IWM 14-18 NOW Legacy Fund commission in partnership with The Hunterian, University of Glasgow.
