Thomas A Clark – New Stobhill Hospital Glasgow
The New Stobhill Hospital Glasgow will soon open. It will be one of the largest hospitals in Scotland. It is built by Reiach and Hall Architects, Edinburgh. These architects also developed the new extended building for The Pier Arts Centre in Stromness, Scotland (2007), which is nominated for the 2009 Mies van der Rohe European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture. Associated with the artist Alan Johnston, Reiach and Hall also run Sleeper, a space for art in Edinburgh.
Thomas A Clark was commissioned to lead a group of artists to install artworks in the New Stobhill Hospital. There are permanent installations of works by Olwen Shone, Andreas Karl Schulze, Kenneth Dingwall, Donald Urquhart and Thomas A Clark.
