Ross Sinclair

Exhibitions City Dome

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Glasgow-born Ross Sinclair’s Real Life projects. Throughout that time Sinclair has sought to re-imagine the relationships in our society through an on-going investigation of the many institutions and constructs to which we all are inextricably linked, as individuals and collectively.

Sinclair has been a leading figure in the collaboration between art and music in Scotland over the last 25 years. This exhibition launches a project which aims to establish new bands whose members have been born in the last 20 years, and who will work with Sinclair to write and perform new music.

As part of 20 Years of Real Life five new bands were formed during Summer 2014. Collective and Ross gave away enough instruments to teenagers to start five new bands.
