Featuring a contrasting range of media, G20 Artist Collective‘s second annual exhibition, showing at The Alchemy Experiment Glasgow, showcases fourteen contemporary artists based in the G20 postcode area of Glasgow.

The title of this year’s show, Tektos, has two reference points: the Greek term tekton, which translates as crafted or constructed, and highlights the craftsmanship and ingenuity which define this artistic community, while the second derives from the composite material tektite, a natural glass formed from the molten debris of meteorite impacts, symbolising how the show melds together a variety of media.
