Insight & Outlook the Koestler exhibition for Scotland was held this year at Tramway, Glasgow. It was an exhibition of artwork and writing from prisons, secure hospitals, secure children’s homes and criminal justice services in Scotland. This year the exhibition was curated by young care leavers with guidance from Glasgow artist David Shrigley. The project was sponsored by The Co-operative.
I was invited to the opening of the exhibition on the 2nd November 2012. This was as a result of the blog “FREE” which I wrote about the London exhibition. A client, who was exhibiting, also put in a good word for me. I would like to thank the Koestler Trust for the invitation.
Below is a selection of the artwork and writings.
Look closely at the words written on the face. What do you see?
