Glasgow International Festival

Dates

Fri 24 Apr 2020 to Sun 10 May 2020

Glasgow International is Scotland’s largest festival for contemporary art, taking place over three weeks every two years across the city of Glasgow. Renowned as a centre for contemporary art, the festival draws on the city’s strengths as a vibrant and distinctive centre of artistic production and display. Combining the characteristics of a visual arts biennial with an open submission model for artists and curators based in the city, GI is a truly unique event in the European cultural calendar.

The Festival had two annual editions in 2005 and 2006 before changing to its current format in 2008. 2018 saw the festival return for the eighth edition, and sixth in the biennial format. GI 2020 will take place 24 April – 10 May 2020, with the theme 'Attention.'
