In homage to Lynne Tillman’s ‘Madame Realism’, ALWAYS OPEN, ALWAYS CLOSED follows Ms Real, an art critic in her early 30s living in Glasgow. She traverses the city, visiting exhibitions with friends, eating vegan sausage rolls and drinking tiny Belgian lagers at exhibition openings, whilst getting lost in her Instagram feed, her imagination and her own cultural and theoretical touchstones, spinning around and falling over several times over the course of one very, very long disorientating day.
