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.
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.

Coming Soon: 8 March 2019
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.
