Mark-making: Perspectives on Drawing
19 April - 20 October 2019
A group show by six young contemporary artists - Erica Eyres, Lois Green, Ross Hamilton Frew, Jonathan Owen, Gregor Wright and France-Lise McGurn - who use drawing as a major part of their practice.
8 March 2019 - (ongoing)
Domestic Bliss presents works from Glasgow Museums’ collection reflecting on this building’s history as a former house, Royal Exchange and civic space. Observing how artists work with fine art, design and craft practices alongside social and political changes, this show explores domestic labour and feminism, public and private space, intimate relationships and historical narratives.
We live in a consumerist world where home interior, lifestyle magazines and social media present flawless examples for us to emulate in our own lives. What happens if we question what is seen as Domestic Bliss, and whose stories are hidden or revealed?
Stones Steeped in History
This display reveals key moments in the building's history. It begins in the 1700s when it was commissioned as a mansion for a tobacco merchant until the present.
