A film & video programme shown at RE:MARKS, a new exhibition space managed by The Art Department.
15-21 High Street, accessible from the top floor of the Paisley Centre shopping mall enter by 23 High Street.
We are delighted to be opening the former Marks & Spencer’s store as a post-industrial art shed for the Big Art Show. The space has been ripped back to the brick and steel, offering an edgy installation space similar to Glasgow’s Tramway or Fruitmarket. This will host our entire film, digital and video programme for the exhibition.
The Marks and Spencer’s site was built in 1931 by structural steel-work company Moreland, Hayne and Company Ltd of Goswell Road in London, who contributed to the re-generation of post-war Britain and were responsible for the construction of many great buildings using British Steel. Most notably they built BBC Bush House, the HQ’s of many daily newspapers in London, many West End retail stores, and most of the London theatres.
RE:MARKS is an exciting addition to Paisley’s cultural and physical regeneration and we are lucky to have such an unusual, industrial art space that we hope will be of interest to filmmakers, event organisers and installation artists beyond the Big Art Show.
