Curatorial development in Scotland

Gordon Douglas

Gordon Douglas is a performance artist, collaborator, and writer living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. He is currently invested in developing models of co-inhabitance, friendship and organisation in order to further perceive models of governance through cultural inheritance, queer histories and performance art ontologies. His research draws on modes of peer assembly, and aims to host temporary social communities informed by long-term mutually beneficial dialogues. He is interested in how these intangible fields of together-ness can become spaces that subversive and autonomous practices can use for their own means.

Research partners have included cultural practitioners from various media: jewellery, post-punk, journalism, fanfiction, and education among others, and has taken the forms of conversation, events design, performance and publication.

He graduated from the Environmental Art department at Glasgow School of Art in 2013, and served on the Transmission committee from 2013-15. Recent projects include: Field Recording, 2015, with Tom Graham (Wysing Arts Centre, Bourn); The Garden Is Our Wall, 2015, with Stefanie Cheong, James Harding, Jake Watts and Tess Vaughan (Intermedia, CCA Glasgow); when two becomes one (who wins who won), 2013, with Phoebe Amis, (Ó da Casa, Guimaraes); and Every Drop A Memory, An Instruction, 2013 (Platform, Easterhouse).
