The Force and Form of Memory

24th November 2011 – 7th January 2012

Location:  Hampden Museum

Entry:  Free

The Hampden Museum in Glasgow is hosting this fascinating exhibition by 65 specially invited artists from across the UK, each of whom has been presented with the challenge of creating a work based on the theme of memory.

The exhibition, a collaboration between the Compass Gallery and Alzheimer Scotland, enlists the skills of some of today’s most creative and influential artists to present a very timely and topical show.  Today, memory loss-related illness touches all of us in one way or another.  This exhibition is designed to stimulate and inspire the creative minds of both the artists and the public, raising awareness of the importance of our memories for recording our experiences and forming our identity.

Each specially chosen artist has his or her own individual response to the topic, creating a lasting sensory and visual experience for the onlooker.  There is humour, melancholy, pathos, fear, happiness, joy and all the emotions that make up the human spirit.
