Art is all around – Glasgow International

Glasgow is a city with a constant hub of visual art. But Glasgow International (GI)  has a wonderful way of putting art in your way – so you literally can’t miss it.

The Briggait has been overrun with the build up to GI. Inflatable ladders leading up to my office on the balcony offer an alternative route down. The exhibition, Reclaimed – The Second Life of Sculpture – explores the historical and contemporary work, including some of that’s not seen the light of day for two decades.

Some of the exhibits are a flashback to the 80s. So stroll around this eclectic mix and absorb it all.

It’s ok to touch

GI festival in Glasgow- GOMAThe GoMA is home to my favourite exhibition – Things to Come by Aleksandra Domanvoic.  A must see.  Art you can touch is always an exciting novelty – and you can walk through this art.

And if you fancy learning more, check out the small DVD library of films you can borrow for 48 hours. Brilliant.

There’s a huge programme of events happening across Glasgow for GI until the 21April, including talks, walks and workshops. So go on – stumble across some art across the city, try out a workshop and discover something new and wonderful.
