The Plinth is a living room gallery, a project founded by Hamish Chapman, Freya Fullarton and Charlotte Fountaine. Hamish and Freya are both fine art students in their final year at Glasgow School of Art, and Charlotte is a designer who recently graduated.
The aim of The Plinth is to allow people to have a pressure-free exhibition, atop a plinth in their flat in Maryhill, Glasgow. It arose out of the idea of having a really easy low-key way of having little exhibitions. Each exhibition runs for one week only, and is documented online and in the quarterly publication. This way, all works that go on The Plinth will reach an audience. So far, the project has been running since March 2014 and has featured work by many artists and designers – a few from overseas and many Scotland based. The Plinthis currently seeking funding to print a second addition of the publication, featuring the latest exhibitions.
Find more information about past exhibitions and the artists who have exhibited on The Plinth’s website. Submissions are more than welcome. The next week-long slot to have an exhibition is late November 2014. If you would like to exhibit on the The Plinth please get in touch here.
