Game Changer

1 August – 1 September 2013

Exhibitions Off-Site All Sided Games

Rachel Adams, Jacob Dahlgren, Nilmar Güreş and Haroon Mirza

Game Changer was a group exhibition specially made for Meadowbank Sports Centre that presented work by artists who consider materials, space, movement, physicality and body image. Many of the works displayed were either inspired by, referenced or questioned the architecture, the equipment and the activity that takes place at Meadowbank Sports Centre and other sporting arenas.

Game Changer marked the beginning of Collective's two-year project All Sided Games, which placed contemporary artists in existing sporting venues built or used for the 1970 and 1986 Edinburgh Commonwealth Games, and in venues to be used in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The artists worked with people to make new work of mutual interest. Game Changer was the first public event produced by Collective that touches upon some of the ideas in All Sided Games.

All Sided Games set out to find new ways to work with families in their locality, seeking out areas of mutual interest by thinking and acting through the production and presentation of art. Six commissions by Jacob Dahlgren, Mitch Miller, Cristina Lucas, Nils Norman and Assemble, Florrie James and Dennis McNulty brought artists, individuals and groups together in and around venues built or used for the Edinburgh 1970 and 1986 Commonwealth Games and the Glasgow 2014 Games. The project also explored and expanded on ideas of the local through How Near is Here? a symposium and intensive programme.
