‘TV Classics Part 1’

Cameron Morgan is a multi-talented and proliﬁc artist working with Glasgow’s Project Ability as part of the Aspire programme, since 1991. TV Classics Part 1 celebrates the culture and history of television throughout the decades. Each painting marks an era, a style and a television programme.
The nine paintings and accompanying videos that make up TV Classics Part 1 depict Morgan’s favourite television programmes from the past nine decades, shown ‘screened’ on a television set from that decade.
The TV Classics Part 1 website provides bibliographic information on the artist, video interviews with Morgan and the project collaborators, as well as behind the scene action and work in progress videos. As part of the exhibition we invite the public to share their television related memories and post stories, pictures and video to our social media platforms, using #tvclassicsstories.
This body of work could not have been realised without the Unlimited commission which was awarded to Morgan in 2015. The Unlimited commission has also supported Cameron in making another brand new body of work for the Unlimited Festival at the Tramway in Glasgow in September. More details on this to follow soon!
