Gallery of Modern Art Exhibition Programme

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Domestic Bliss

    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?


  5. Stones steeped in history exhibition view
    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.
