22 August – 18 October 2024

Co-commissioned with Reid Gallery, The Glasgow School of Art

Marlene Smith’s solo exhibition will include new sculptural and drawing work, emerging from the artists’ ongoing interest in the material and bodily qualities of sculptural practice and inquiries into the cyclical nature of social histories and familial entanglements.

She was director of The Public in West Bromwich and UK Research Manager for Black Artists and Modernism, a collaborative research project run by the University of the Arts London and Middlesex University.
