Each year, the Art Collection’s exhibitions, events and workshops are directly inspired by the research of the University.

This year the focus is on refugees and migration, under the umbrella title ‘Experiences of Exile’.

This exhibition by Iman Tajik includes work called ‘Calais’ which explores how life is, living day to day in The Jungle camp.

The work is inspired by the artist’s own story. Also included in this exhibition is ‘A to B’ which is a two-channel video performance installation. This work is the starting point of a series of works that question and challenge the notion of borders and spotlight restriction to individual’s freedom to movement.
Iman Tajik is an Iranian artist and award-winning photographer based in Glasgow, as a refugee, since 2012. His practice is anchored in a strong social interest and demonstrates an effort to make work that is a critical tool connected to international movements for social change.
