As part of Glasgow International 2021, we're delighted to welcome Moroccan artist Soufiane Ababri for a virtual talk. 

Discover more about Soufiane Ababri's work and his first solo exhibition in Scotland.

The video will be available in July!

Born in Morocco and now based in Paris, artist Soufiane Ababri works across a range of forms: from performance and drawing to sculpture and film. His work often critiques prescriptive gender roles, highlighting the legacies of oppressive colonial structures, specifically relating to racism and homophobia. ‘Bedworks’, for example, is a series of drawings that provides intimate portraits of queer life and challenges socially acceptable expressions of homoerotic intimacy.

Discover Ababri’s first solo exhibition in Scotland, curated by Myriam Mouflih, during Glasgow International 2021, between 11th and 27th June. 

Taking place at The Gardener’s Bothy at Studio Pavilion, within the flourishing spring greenery of the walled garden at House for an Art Lover, the exhibition Sub! is a confrontation of the intimate with the social world and what can be drawn from these situations.
