Description

IT'S ALL ALLOWED
How the archives of artist Adrian Howells reveal his professional practice and creative development

It’s All Allowed is the acknowledged ‘catchphrase’ of artist, the late Adrian Howells.

His extraordinary portfolio details his work as a pioneering live artist, a theatrical performer and leader in the field of intimate one-to-one performances – such as Foot-Washing for the Sole (2008) and Salon Adrienne (2006) - as his alter ego, Adrienne.

This is catalogued in the Archives and Special Collections of Glasgow University. The archive offers a unique insight into how the artist managed his creative career in practical terms and is a tangible and fascinating narrative of his professional practice, from its start after graduation in 1984, until 2014.

Peter Morphew, Cataloguing Archivist of the Archives and Special Collections at the University of Glasgow, presents aspects of the collection to illustrate how Howells managed his practice and earned his living from his creativity.

You are invited to learn how he did this and how he made his art his life and work.

If you are attending from outside of GSA, please contact Libby Anson (l.anson@gsa.ac.uk) for details of how to gain access to the event.

It's All Allowed is a collaboration between The Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow
