Studio Pavilion and Project Space 

The Studio Pavilion and associated exhibition spaces are currently closed due to exhibition change-overs.

They will reopen for Glasgow International on Friday 20 April 2018.

During Glasgow International 2018 (20 April - 07 May 2018) the Studio Pavilion and associated exhibition spaces will be open daily 10am-5pm.


Heritage Centre

Access to the Heritage Centre will be suspended as of Wednesday 11 April due to a change in exhibitions.

During Glasgow International 2018 (20 April - 07 May 2018) the Heritage Centre will host a temporary exhibition by artist Rosie O'Grady.

The information panels normally on display in the Heritage Centre have been removed and instead Rosie O'Grady presents her project 'May Day' which attempts to agitate how artist Margaret Macdonald is represented. As Glasgow marks 150 years since the birth of Macdonald’s collaborator and husband, architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this project remodels Macdonald’s gesso panel ‘The May Queen’ as a crop circle. In 2016, French educators Marie-Noëlle Lanuit and Jean-Claude Piquard created a giant clitoris-shaped crop circle to protest the marginalisation of female sexual pleasure. Drawing upon a shift in the social and political history of May Day, it explores how crop circles might depart from associations with the paranormal and hoaxes to become a mode of protest and distress signal.
