Glasgow to Hold visual Art Celebration in run up to Commonwealth Games

Art with a bit of difference will be on display early next year, with Car Hire Glasgow Airport having a look at some of the work on show and think it will be a great way to spend some time during April.

A celebration of visual art will be held in Glasgow ahead of the Commonwealth Games, held in the city next summer. Over 40 different sites will be used with about 80 artists from around the world showcasing their work.

Festival director Sarah McCrory said: “Glasgow International will continue to show the strength of the renowned and exceptional production from within Glasgow, as well as invite artists into the city to embed into its museums and alternative spaces, encouraging discourse around multifarious topics ranging from new technologies and museum taxonomies to the use of humour. Once again the festival will provide a focus on the wealth of its arts organisations and communities, whilst embracing input to these discussions from international practitioners.”

Organisers of the event have said that up to 90% of the work will be brand new or will be on display for the first time in the UK, during the eighteen day spring event.

The majority of the work will be in the main galleries across the city centre but there will be work on display at the old Govanhill Baths which will be taken over by inflatables.
