Alan Dimmick: Photographs from the last 15 years of contemporary art in Scotland.
Filming Gobstopper by Roderick Buchanan, 1999.

GLASGOW.- The exhibition Photographs from the last 15 years of Contemporary Art in Scotland presents over 300 black and white photographs from the archive of the Glasgow-based photographer Alan Dimmick, focusing on his unique documentation of people, places and events that have contributed to Scotland's worldwide reputation as a vibrant centre for the contemporary visual arts.

Dimmick’s pictures include ‘behind the scenes’ snapshots that illustrate the strength of the social fabric of the contemporary art scene in Scotland. In many cases, these photos are the only existing visual records of influential artworks, bands, exhibitions, performers and places. Examples include images from The Chateau, a venue for artists and musicians in Glasgow; performances at Transmission Gallery by bands such as Elizabeth Go and Life Without Buildings, and still images from the filming of Roderick Buchanan’s celebrated artwork Gobstopper (part of Glasgow Museums’ collection). Many of the pictures are from important moments in the history of exhibition venues such as Dundee Contemporary Arts, Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery, Inverleith House, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and Collective Gallery, and Glasgow’s Transmission Gallery, The Modern Institute, Glasgow Project Room, CCA, Tramway and The Changing Room.

This display has been developed in partnership with Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow. The exhibition will be on view through May 13, 2012 at the Gallery of Modern Art.

Alan Dimmick (b 1961)
Glasgow-based photographer Alan Dimmick (b.1961) started taking pictures as a teenager, later studying photography in Glasgow. Dimmick began working as a photographer in the 1980s, documenting a variety of subjects from landscapes to bands playing Glasgow’s vibrant music scene. In the mid 1990s, a friend introduced him to Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, and this led to work documenting their displays and events. Since then Dimmick has worked throughout Scotland for a range of different artists and galleries.
