Open Discussion: Nice Dream


Nice Dream is an open discussion organised by Grampian Hospital Art Trust (GHAT) and WAGON featuring three speakers who are working within specific contexts to integrate arts into the day-to-day experience of people.

In this open discussion, we aim to explore how art can work to improve the perception of a place by introducing it into the day-to-day experience of people. The event is informed by the exhibition H2O, featuring new commissioned work by artists Sam Dransfield and Hannah Imlach. In creating work for H2O the artists began by considering the Foresterhill Campus (ARI) as a small town, within which 20,000 people pass through on a daily basis. The speakers will present ideas around art as a means of way-finding from their diverse perspectives working within specific locations.

The title for the event comes from Sam’s work titled Re: Hello Sam which is an email conversation (displayed as floor to ceiling vinyl text) between Sam and a contact in China, Ruby, who took him to a quarry in the Quanzhou Province in China where he sourced materials.
