The Artist Placement Group (APG)

homepageimg-1The Artist Placement Group (APG) emerged in London in the 1960s. The organisation actively sought to reposition the role of the artist within a wider social context, including government and commerce, while at the same time playing an important part in the history of conceptual art during the 1960s and 1970s. The Observer journalist, Peter Beaumont, has described the APG as ‘one of the most radical social experiments of the 1960s’. more

“Grazing Horses” Canter Into Grand Central Terminal This March

2013_01_niccave1

Over a year ago, the art world was lit up by a mesmerizing gallery show from the artist Nick Cave. For Now at the Mary Boone Gallery in Chelsea featured Cave’s “daring and iconic Soundsuits – hybrid sculptural forms based on the scale of the Artist’s body,” which he called a “psychedelic, functified freak show that is an accumulation of the decades from the perspective of voodoo woo-loo.” Now, in just two months, he’ll have his first public art installation at Grand Central Terminal. more

Slinkachu’s street art, ‘Concrete Ocean’

Slinkachu-little-people-city-street-art-14

The street artist known only as Slinkachu has been abandoning little people on the streets of London since 2006.  His first project, ‘Little People in the City’, saw minature men, women and children living their lives on the streets of London and was immortalised in the 2008 book entitled Little People in the City”. Since then, Slinkachu has done a number of other projects, notably ‘Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow’ which documented the decline of a tiny, middleaged and balding super-hero on the streets of London and ‘Inner City Snail – a slow moving street art project’ which saw Slinkachu ‘customising’ a number of London snails which then presumably went about their business none the wiser. more

Garscube Landscape Link – The Phoenix Flowers

carpet261x174

The brief was to transform an urban pedestrian underpass from an unsafe and unpleasant space to a bright, spacious and safe connection to north Glasgow. The original underpass was designed as part of the construction of the M8 Motorway which cuts through the centre of Glasgow effectively severing the north of the city from the city centre. This severing has seen reduced investment in the north of the city with low rise, lost cost light industrial uses appearing in the voids left after the extensive demolition carried to construct the motorway. more

Call it the Garscube Link, the Phoenix Flowers or the Metal Petals; the improvements to this route are attracting many names! Funding from the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Enterprise enabled this £3.5M project aimed at improving links between the canal and the City Centre. The metal petals were inspired by the former Phoenix Park that was lost to the area when the M8 was built.

This important new public realm development is about re-connecting North Glasgow back to the city centre for pedestrians and cyclists. more
