Curated by David Dale Gallery

As part of the organisation’s ongoing international exchange programme, David Dale Gallery are honoured to curate O-n, a solo exhibition of new work by Glasgow based artist Lauren Gault. The exhibition, hosted by The Workbench (Milan), will be a site-specific installation considering the past and present functions of the space and how these multiplicities can exist in tandem. Developed through the distinct writings of Martha Craig and Manuel De Landa, the exhibition reflects on ideas of material travel and dissolve, in addition to how the inherent language of spaces can be adjusted or expanded upon. 

The exhibition, curated by David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, is part of an ongoing series of organisational exchanges initiated by David Dale Gallery. The project is preceded by exchanges with Swimming Pool, Sofia and SALTS, Birsfelden, and will be followed by an exchange with Rupert, Vilnius in 2019/20. The Workbench presented a solo exhibition by Milan based artist Mirko Canesi in November 2018, as the initial part of this exchange.
