Presented in Tramway’s main exhibition space, The Big Picture Show is a month-long season of artists’ moving image programmed especially for tots, teens and parents.

Developed in collaboration with artists and their children, this diverse programme of experimental, narrative and performance-based works from the 1930s to the present day will travel a magical and mysterious path through the world of moving image.

The season includes works by pioneers of experimental animation, Len Lye and Norman McLaren, seminal works by artist duo Fischli/Weiss and John Smith, alongside work by contemporary artists, including Margaret Salmon, Beatrice Gibson and Katy Dove.

Over the course of the month-long exhibition, The Big Picture Show will comprise of three programmes of artists’ moving image, including Psy-kid-elia, (Psychedelia for children, aged 0 – 8 years), Once Upon a Time, (Narrative for children, aged 4 – 12 years) and Performing for the camera, (Performance for children, aged 8 – 15 years).

Accompanying the main exhibition will be a special Parents Screening featuring a performance by Glasgow-based artist and mother, Corin Sworn, followed by a screening of Claire Hooper‘s arresting work, Eris (2012).

THE BIG PICTURE SHOW is programmed by LUX Scotland in association with Tramway, with support from LUX.
