Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
Scotland's biennial festival of contemporary visual art, Glasgow International, will return in 2021 between the 11th and 27th June!
About Glasgow International
Glasgow International is the largest festival for contemporary visual art in Scotland, with over 60 admission free exhibitions, performances and events taking place over 18 days across Glasgow.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the 2020 festival was postponed to 2021 and will now take place Fri 11 - Sun 27 June 2021.
The theme for the 9th edition of Glasgow International is attention, something that has taken on new resonances since the Coronavirus outbreak and pandemic. As much a method or approach as a theme, Attention asks us to consider how, where and in whom our attention is placed at a time of seemingly constant distraction through, for instance, social media and 24 hour news feeds. What are the opportunities for close looking both in the making and viewing of art, and how we attend to others whom we care for, as well as ourselves?
The festival is a special moment, a crescendo in the creative rhythm of the city, a concentrated instance that opens up a space for relearning and recovering the stretches of time before, during and beyond it. Attention seeks to step outside the everyday and open up a new space for looking, thinking and spending time with the work of artists and to see afresh the intent behind the work.
Where possible we will update our listings to notify of cancelled, postponed and rescheduled events, however we STRONGLY ADVISE that you check with the venue/organiser in the first instance for updates.
All information (whether in text or photographs) is supplied in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
