Cameron Morgan, project ability
9 MARCH – 30 APRIL
Morgan is a multi-talented and prolific artist working with Project Ability as part of our Aspire programme, since 1991.
In 2010 Morgan painted and exhibited a large mural on the walls of the Collins Gallery in Glasgow, as part of the exhibition MyScape. This was the first time Cameron worked straight on the wall to create a large scale mural of his journey on the bus to his studio at Project Ability. This was received very well and lead Project Ability and Cameron to work on several more murals, including Cameron’s Way: Coast to Coast for Generation festival in 2014, which firmly established his standing as a contemporary artist.
In 2016 Cameron was awarded an Unlimited commission which enabled him to make two new bodies of work; TV Classics Part 1 and Put your sweet lips closer to the phone. 2016 also saw Cameron awarded a lifetime fellowship to the RSA, with work exhibited at several different venues, exhibitions and festivals around the U.K.
In 2018, Creative Scotland awarded Morgan a grant to pursue collaborative partnerships with other contemporary artists and develop his skills, which resulted in exhibitions in Manchester and Glasgow.
This exhibition forms part of the Unlimited conference.
