Cold on the outside examines the importance of dialogue among artists surrounding contemporary painting today. It focuses upon the work of five painters that has evolved through such discussions after spending an intense period together in rural Norway.
Cold on the outside was part of the Glasgow Open House Art Festival, which ran from the 1st to the 4th May, exhibiting artworks across Glasgow in a variety of venues, from flats to industrial spaces. Glasgow Open House is an artist-led, not-for-profit organisation that was founded by Glasgow School of Art alumna Amalie Silvani-Jones in 2013. It was formed in order to meet the practical needs of the city’s grassroots art community and takes its lead from Glasgow’s already prevalent ‘Do-It-Yourself’ culture in relation to visual art and music.
