‘…but when the sun set and darkness came on, they lay down to rest by the stern cables
of the ship, and as soon as early rosy-fingered dawn appeared, then they set sail for
the wide camp of the Achaeans.’ (Homer, Illiad. Book 1, Line 458.)
As Glasgow’s contemporary biennial art world convenes, the group exhibition Rosy Fingered Dawn launches on 19 April 2018 at The Savoy Centre, open through to 1 May 2018.
The Savoy Shopping Centre encourages its visitors to submit to its uncanny experience. The exhibition consequently interprets the space’s unique physical and symbolic structures which are representative of commercialism and deterioration. The exhibition provides an optimistic prospect in contrast to the spatial context. The exhibited up-and-coming artists, epithetical to the new dawn, will aim to rebirth the centre through different interpretations of what The Savoy Centre was, is, and could be.
The exhibition is comprised of several different mediums of art which comment upon reaction,
spatial context, institutional confines, and the democratisation of display.
Join us for the opening night on 19 April from 18:00 – 21:00, drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided, accompanied by live performances.
