In a small room a picture hangs on the wall. I sit on a chair to see what will happen next.
A-M-G5 was set up in Glasgow in 2018 by Andrew Mummery as a space for exhibitions and dialogue, and as a publisher of limited edition books. The concept behind the space is to encourage a closer reading of individual artworks and a create a critical context for them.
Exhibitions focus on a single work by an invited artist. Each is accompanied by a book containing documentation of the exhibited artwork and a specially commissioned piece of creative writing.
A-M-G5 has also hosted discussions and conversations between artists, curators and academics, and the occasional special project.
From 2018 until 2020 A-M-G5 was based at Oxford House in Glasgow. From June 2021 it will share the new exhibition space, 20 Albert Road, with the curatorial groups Cento and Ivory Tars.
A-M-G5 works with visual artists, designers, creative writers, musicians and curators.The programme focuses on work made in Scotland, but includes contributions from artists from elsewhere in the UK and from overseas.
Andrew Mummery works as an independent visual arts consultant and is curator of the estate of the artist Carol Rhodes. Between 1996 and 2014 he set up and ran two contemporary art galleries in London – the Andrew Mummery Gallery [1996-2006] and Mummery+Schnelle [2007-2014].
