Situated in the heart of the City Centre, GoMA is Scotland's most visited modern art gallery displaying work that highlights the interests, influences and working methods of artists from around the world.

Glasgow is world famous for the artists that live and study here. GoMA collects and borrows work that highlights the interests, influences and working methods artists from around the world share with those from Glasgow.

As the centre for Glasgow’s modern art collection, its changing displays are inspired by what the City owns.
