The New Glasgow Society hosted the solo exhibition, "Not Protest but Active Resistance" by Lavinia Raccanello, an Italian artist and activist, based in Glasgow for the MANY Graduate Residency programme 2013 / 2014. Her work focuses on the relationship between human beings and society, with a particular emphasis on the power of dialectic and participatory practice. At the beginning of March 2014, she moved to Faslane Peace Camp, the longest-running permanent peace camp in the world, and for her first solo exhibition at New Glasgow Society she stands up with Faslane Peace Campers for a nuclear-free Scotland.
On the closing day of the exhibition, September 7th, an open talk was hosted in the gallery space, inviting artists, politicians, activists, and concerned citizens to come together to share their views on nuclear weapons along with their hopes for the future.
