This event is run by an external organisation but takes place in a Glasgow Life venue. Glasgow Life does not take any responsibility for this event including the communication of any cancellations or rearrangements, or the ticket sales for this event.

Glasgow International, Scotland’s largest festival for contemporary art, returns to the city for its ninth edition from 11 – 27 June 2021. 

Comprising over 70 exhibitions and events, performances and talks at over 30 spaces across the city and online, and showcasing work by over 100 artists; the 2021 festival – originally scheduled to open in April 2020 – will highlight Glasgow as a centre for the production and display of innovative contemporary art through its Commissioned and Across the City Programmes.

GI2021 will also present a Digital Programme, giving artists an alternative space in which to present work.

The festival’s theme is Attention; a topic which has shifted in emphasis over the past year, and the significance of which has, in many respects, become amplified.

Glasgow Life is a key supporter of the festival, hosting exhibitions across a number of its venues including Kelvingrove Art Gallery, The Mitchell Library, GoMA and Tramway, the latter of which co-commissioned and co-curated this year's main gallery exhibition by Martine Syms.
