Aman Sandhu works between Montréal and Glasgow. His installations encompass drawing, moving image, and text. He considers them as ensembles of objects that refuse to come into view through institutions’ unrelenting calculations. Through improvisation, he aims to rethink the place of refusal in critique to produce other ways of coming to knowledge. Sandhu studied at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (Klasse Rita McBride) and received his MFA from The Glasgow School. He is currently pursuing a practice-led PhD at Concordia University, Montréal. Sandhu was awarded the 2020 Emerging Visual Artist Residency at Cove Park, Helensburgh. He was included in Glasgow International 2021 and has been engaged in a long-term pedagogical research project with SAVAC (South Asian Visual Arts Centre). He has exhibited at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Montréal; Market Gallery, Glasgow; Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow; Celine Gallery, Glasgow; Gardiner Museum, Toronto; Younger than Beyoncé Gallery, Toronto; and FOCUS Photography Festival, Mumbai.

Andrew Black was born in 1990 in Leeds, UK, and has lived and worked in Glasgow since 2009. His recent moving-image projects use methodologies such as oral history recording, speculative storytelling, and collage to explore social and ecological narratives in specific places. Andrew served on the committee of Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, in 2016 and 2017, and is the recipient of the 2021 Margaret Tait Award. His commission, entitled The Besom, will premiere in late 2022.
