Group Show is an art and music chat show featuring a new guest every month. Guests range from artists, producers, curators, musicians and performers based in Glasgow to those further afield and visiting the city. There will be chat about current and upcoming projects and play tracks chosen by them in between. Group Show was originally a podcast in two series commissioned firstly by 12o collective in London in 2017 and The NewBridge Project, Newcastle/Gateshead in 2019. It featured interviews, sound work and music with artists from across the UK with particular focus on artist-led activity and early career artists. Series One and Two are available to download on iTunes and Spotify. Group Show is presented by Caitlin Merrett King, a Glasgow based curator - caitlinmerrettking.co.uk

22/06/2020 // Group Show w/ Myriam Mouflih
Happy June everyone! This month I had a wonderful conversation with Myriam Mouflih (on zoom hence the crackling, apologies).
We spoke about working from home, the pros and cons of online film programmes during Covid-19 and institutional racism in the arts, specifically Jemma Desai's The Work is Not For Us paper and current online talks series with LUX. As well as Myriam's recent article for MAP magazine, friendship and her new beanbag.
Enjoy! Caitlin x
