Exhibition Launch and Music Evening at the Muxima
Thursday 30th November, 7.30 – 10:30pm
Exhibition runs: 1st – 31st December
Beyond Gentrification – The Luxury Gap: Exhibition of photographs, prints and drawings, commenting on the growing social divisions in society. The exhibition is part of an ongoing collaborative project between Glasgow based artists Roscoe Thompson and Mark Jones plus Bob Dawson from London.
The Luxury Gap: “A gold-rush into Paradise. An impotent pre-emptive strike against decaying grandeur. The oxymoron of ‘gated-community’. These images are at once both a realisation of a dream and a dystopian nightmare. ….. this is real, like free copies of the Financial Times being read in the City of London, as the homeless huddle at their well-heeled feet”. Roscoe Thompson.
