Project Ability presents Cameron Morgan’s open studio project; the first of our two part contribution for GENERATION. Working directly onto the fabric of the gallery, Cameron Morgan is creating a mural of Scotland’s landscape, architecture, wildlife and social history; inviting visitors to see the nuts and bolts of his highly productive and individual working method. Open to the public throughout, gallery visitors can engage with the artist as he executes his wall painting and will witness a story unfolding through a surrounding landscape with the vigour in which Morgan paints. The work will be completed by the end of June and the exhibition will continue during July and August 2014.

Cameron’s Way: Coast to Coast is part of GENERATION a major, nationwide exhibition programme showcasing some of the best and most significant artists to have emerged from Scotland over the last 25 years. GENERATION traces the developments in art in Scotland since 1989. It shows the generation of ideas, of experiences, and of worldclass art on an unparalleled scale by over 100 artists in more than 60 venues. The artists within GENERATION came to attention whilst working in Scotland, helping to create the vibrant and internationally recognised contemporary art scene that exists here today. The art that has emerged from Scotland during this period is characterised by its diversity, rather than by one particular style or dominant trend. GENERATION offers an opportunity to see art that is innovative, thought- provoking, imaginative, at times beautiful, at others challenging, but always inspiring.
GENERATION is delivered as a partnership between the National Galleries of Scotland, Glasgow Life and Creative Scotland and is part of Culture 2014, the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme.
