SOThe List 9— 15 August 1991 i
; Windfall, Seamen’s Mission, Glasgow.
: Until 25 Aug.
? A disused building on Glasgow's
I changing waterfront has recently been
} given a new lease of life, it only
I temporarily. The formerSeamen’s Mission, overlooking the Clyde from
t the Broomielaw, is the venue forthe
Windfall ’91 exhibition, part ofan
’ artist-initiated project which is now
open to the public until 25 August. Since the beginning of July, artists
from Glasgow and other parts of Europe
1 have been working in the building
towards the current exhibition. The
project, however, stretches beyond
what is now on view. Its aim is not
solely the presentation of a finished
product in the way of an exhibition.
Windfall is perhaps better described as
i a confluence of ideas than as a single
exhibition. It has been around since at
least 1987 when the first exhibition
took place in London. At thatlime the
participants involved were all
London-based, but the project has
since gathered such momentum that
= the Glasgow ’91 venture boasts 25
‘ artists representing six European
1 countries- France, Great Britain,
Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and
Spain. Every aspect of the initiation
and organisation of the proiect now
underaway has been carried out by the
Glasgow-based artists who are
involved and the vast scale of the
current exhibition is a direct result of
the amount of energy and commitment
' which has gone into its realisation.
Windfall’s scale alone may be
admired, but it also serves as an
example of the potential for positive
; and valuable collaboration with the
n « 3 ..I““" Q *- s"' V." -~ 5”" .P W +4“; . _ ‘I t I ” i "

rest of Europe. It must also be said, that inthe presentunhappy climate ofthe
1 Scottish art world. the energy.
confidence and ability of the participants is like a blast of fresh air. All of the work produced in and for the
I 30 or so exhibition spaces will be
a dismantled at the end of the period, the ‘ building itseltbeing duefordemolition later in the year. Having been created
specifically for the site they now
occupy, the works all relate in some way to their location, though this is
; conveyed through a broad variety of ‘ approaches and concerns, brought into
effect by means of many different
. media and techniques. Such overall variety is, of course, a reflection of the ‘ differences within the group of artist
themselves, both in nationality and in background, some being recent graduates while others are more established. The work includes
everything from the small-scale and . intricate to the vast and occasionally E engulfing.
Some of the participants will be on
i hand throughout the exhibition and there are to be scheduled tours of the work and discussions on Saturdays at
; 2pm, which will be of particular value
for those who are not familiar with this
. kind of work or with the non-gallery
The Windfall ’91 exhibition has all of the above to recommend it as worthy of attention and offers a unique opportunity in Scotland to see so much
i new and innovative art, where local
artists“ work can be seen alongside that
of their European counterparts.
