Sculpture & Environmental Art

Stow Building, 38 students

Sculpture & Environmental Art at The Glasgow School of Art is one of the few specialist undergraduate programmes in the UK, and the only one in Scotland, dedicated to exploring relationships between object-making, art in public and social engagement, underpinned by contemporary critical and cultural debates and conditions.

While Sculpture has been taught at the Glasgow School of Art since the 19th century, the introduction of Environmental Art in the mid-1980s and the creation of a single, integrated programme in 2001 has led to a pioneering, influential and cross-disciplinary approach to fine art education and contemporary art practice.

An image of a hanging piece of text. The paper is hung on a dowel, which is strung up on a nail in the wall. The wall is wallpapered with a bumpy, woodchip texture and painted magnolia.

I'm not packed or prepared, but surely I have tons of time to prepare? A whole year left on this plane. Somewhere where I am separate and detached. Roots and vines trail from my achilles. They are preserved, have not yet rotted or dried out;..." The rest of the text is cut off from the bottom of the image.
