Glasgow International

Glasgow, Scotland

NOW CLOSED

Under the new direction of Richard Parry, the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2018 programme will spread across more than 70 venues in the city. As one of the UK’s largest art festivals, it showcases Glasgow as an important location for the production and display of contemporary art. This year’s Director’s Programme begins with the large group exhibition ‘Cellular World’ at the Gallery of Modern Art. It will address influential contemporary concepts including ideas of the ‘cyborg’ and artificial intelligence. In light of the era-defining political changes such as the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump that have occurred since the last edition in 2016, many of the exhibitions will communicate a sense of how artists are responding to the new context in which we now find ourselves. Find out more about Glasgow International 2018 from their website.
