    Stalking The Image: Margaret Tait and Her Legacy

    8 November 2018 - 5 May 2019

    Orcadian artist, poet and filmmaker Margaret Tait is acknowledged as one of Scotland’s most innovative independent filmmakers. From the 1950s onwards, she made more than 30 experimental ‘film-poems’, which have been woefully overlooked. This exhibition provides an opportunity to honour Tait’s achievements in her centenary year alongside work by nine contemporary artists and filmmakers, many of whom have been inspired by Tait.


  2. A collection of modern art, including a painting of Campbell's Oyster Soup.

    TASTE! is an exhibition of artworks from Glasgow Museums' collection displayed alongside material from our archives. It explores how collections are built, artworks are commissioned and exhibitions are organised.
