Art, by the people
It's not often I come across many exhibitions where the visitors are expected to provide the artwork, but that's all part of the appeal of Atelier Public. Roll up your sleeves, get stuck in and see what you can create.

As stated on the website:

"ATELIER PUBLIC#2 is a re-presentation of a 2011 exhibition at GoMA where members of the public were invited to make artworks using materials available in the gallery. In the spirit of ATELIER PUBLIC, GoMA once again invites you to use materials to make new work, which will be installed in the gallery for other visitors to see." - GoMA

I've never even heard of an exhibition where the audience make and exhibit the art. It sounds a bit crazy to me, but art has never been a linear movement. Creativity is at the core of this project, so if you've been yearning for something 'more' to do in Glasgow, look no further.

Even if you're not the most creative, you'd be surprised at what you can rustle up, and how fun it can be trying! Part-takers have free reign over how they use the materials found, of which materials may change over the course of the 13 weeks the exhibition is open.

This is the kind of event which champions the public - no money is exchanged, or policies required, instead, it's about putting you in control (to an extent), of the art which hangs in the gallery, and I'll admit, I'm only a little jealous that I am not a Glaswegian local..
