Mills College Art Museum Presents Work of Two Scottish Artists

See also

For their first exhibition for 2014, the Mills College Art Museum in Oakland is offering a rare opportunity to see the works of two artists.

The Shape of a Pocket is the work of two Scottish artists, moving image artist Anne Colvin and filmmaker Margaret Tait, and the exhibition unfolds through gallery installations, film screenings and readings, with all works complementing the two artists’ styles, which includes Colvin’s non-linear interruptions and Tait’s film poetry.

Among the features of the exhibition will include an installation of screens set among paper rock sculptures, screening A Granite Note, Colvin’s three-channel video which creates a haunting call and response with the use of abstracted visuals, and fragments of objects such as boats and flowers. In a separate room is the screening of two Tait’s films. One is the delicate and motherly portraiture of Portrait of Ga, and the other is Colour Poems, a series of lyrical short pieces, combining spoken word, image, memory, and observation. And finally, there will be a reading room installation created by Colvin, and featuring Tait’s idiosyncratic poems and short stories, as well as the U.S. premiere of a new documentary produced by the Glasgow Women’s Library.

The Shape of a Pocket is on view until March 16th. Log on to for more information.
