Youth Panel Cafe exhibition: Data-day Life

Following the success of last year’s Youth Panel exhibition Picked and Pressed: The Appeal of Edible Plants, the newly developed Data-day life exhibition explores how data from our daily lives can be creatively expressed in engaging and innovative ways across twelve individually designed banners.

Visitors to the Cafe at RAMM will be able to see the creative presentation of a wide variety of data sets collected from the routines of Youth Panel members’ daily lives. These range from mundane daily occurrences to emotive commentaries on personal challenges faced in light of medical conditions and disabilities. This exhibition celebrates the uniqueness of daily life, an idea reflected in the diverse choices of media used to create the banners. These include fabric, thread, paint, and even mud!

The Youth Panel have worked alongside local artist Molly Rooke of Darn Good Studio to develop their ideas. Molly’s practice explores themes of preservation and restoration through coastal geography and heritage, using traditional methods of domestic fixing and repair in an expanded form.

3 vertical fabric banners laid on the floor. One is covered in footprints and mud. ANother has colourful fabric and the words 'duran duran' 'kate bush' 'bowie' and 'Japan'. Another is pale and covered in line marks

The Youth Panel

RAMM’s Youth Panel programme develops the skills and knowledge of a group of young people aged 18-25 in different aspects of museum work and supports them in gaining practical experience in areas such as exhibition development each year. This programme is supported through ARTIST ROOMS, a national partnership programme with Tate and National Galleries of Scotland, with the support of Art Fund and Henry Moore Foundation, and the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.
