The third project from our GSA staff and student call out for proposals is curated by Lesley Young, a tutor with MLitt Curatorial Practice a course hosted by GSA and The University of Glasgow. Lesley is working with Istanbul-based artist Can Altay, to stage his project ‘Ahali: a journal for setting a setting’. ‘Ahali’ is a self-initiated publishing project which began in 2007 which expands from Altay’s artistic practice and includes others. Altay commissioned diverse texts from people including Paul O’Neill, public works, Celine Condorelli and Bik van der Pol, on topics including improvised architecture, systems of organisation, co-habitation and public space. ‘Ahali’ is presented on a bespoke structure, with the audience invited to read contributions and compile their own edit of the material to take away.  

Organised in collaboration with MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art)
