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.

The Art of Survival – The Story of Tim Rollins and K.O.S (1989) is a BBC documentary on the artwork of K.O.S. In the early 1980s artist, teacher and activist, Tim Rollins founded the Art and Knowledge Workshop in the South Bronx together with a group of students with additional needs who Rollins taught at a junior high school. The group called themselves K.O.S. (Kids of Survival). K.O.S. met regularly to create collaborative works often inspired by classic pieces of literature and music. Since their inception, Tim Rollins and K.O.S. have been involved in numerous solo and group exhibitions including the Whitney Biennale in New York and Documenta in Kassel. They have their works held in over 100 permanent collections worldwide.
