Echo + Moira Jeffrey

Echo is an evening event of multidisciplinary presentations in response to Andrew Lacon and Kate V Robertson’s exhibitions, with invited guest Moira Jeffrey.

A longstanding part of the exhibition programme at DCA, Echo is designed to throw new light on the works displayed in our galleries by inviting other artistic voices into the building to respond to each show.

As part of this instalment we have invited writer Moira Jeffrey to respond to our current exhibitions. Moira is a Glasgow-based writer, university teacher and art critic, whose book projects and catalogue essays have focussed on contemporary art practice for the last two decades. Her personal writing projects examine the relationship between lived experience and fictional methods to explore voice, authority and authenticity in written and spoken text.

In advance of this response, there will be further opportunities for other voices to present ideas. In past events, participants have presented a wide variety of new and existing works that they have made in response to, or think is relevant to, the work/themes in our exhibitions. These have previously included drawings, sculptures, short films, poetry, text readings, dance, music, and performance. If you would like to share your creative response to the work on show, please submit a short proposal (no more than 300 words) to by Mon 29 January 2018.
