You're receiving this PDF as part of a solo exhibition titled This Way Out by Scott Myles at The Modern Institute in Glasgow, 25 March 2017 — 29 April 2017.

Utilising the Aird's Lane gallery space as a site for production and simultaneous display, Myles has relocated his studio into the gallery space for the duration of the exhibition. This Way Out is a project which allows an exploration of Myles's practice within the context of a public exhibition, where visitors have access to Myles as he works in the space during normal gallery opening hours. Throughout the six-week cycle of the show, weekly announcements will be made inviting audiences to attend events, screenings and collaborative activities. Further events will happen in an ad-hoc manner, unannounced and generated in a spontaneous nature.

This newsletter is randomly generated on a weekly basis – it takes images and texts from the week, and submissions from invited contributors, and creates an automated PDF and webpage. It functions as a way of disseminating information from the gallery studio to a wider audience, revealing fragments of the work happening there. It has been devised between Scott Myles, designer Neil McGuire and programmer David Kelly.

Screening: Fully Awake — Black Mountain College (by Cathryn Davis Zommer and Neeley House, 2008)
Wednesday 19th April / 8.30pm
The Modern Institute, 3 Aird's Lane, Glasgow

Fully Awake: Black Mountain College is a documentary film exploring "education in a democracy", and highlights the College's belief that the creative arts and practical responsibilities are equally important to intellectual development. Tucked in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Black Mountain College (1933-1957) has emerged as one of the most influencial experiments in 20th century art and learning, and though short lived, BMC's unique model still asks important questions of contemporary art education.
