A Glasgow-based nomadic gallery initiative.
Washington Garcia is a Glasgow-based nomadic gallery initiative directed by artists Kendall Koppe, Ruth Barker and Douglas Morland. With no permanent base, it retains the fl exibility of utilising the city's unique variety of venues in order to reveal artists' practices in distinctive and challenging contexts. The gallery focuses on presenting high-quality work by artists, both from the UK and abroad, at career various stages. Occupying a unique position within the contemporary landscape, the gallery curates a programme that encourages dialogue between institutions and individuals operating within the city's dynamic art community and beyond. In the past year exhibitions have included work by artists Claire Barclay, Kalup Linzy and Miranda Whall, in spaces as varied as a tenement fl at, a working riding school, and an empty Victorian retail space.
