Glasgow Style archives talk & viewing
Mon 17 September 2018
14:00 – 16:00 BST
As one of the oldest art and design institutions in the UK, The Glasgow School of Art is unique in its ability to illustrate, through its Archives and Collections, the nature and history of art education itself; document trends, styles and fashions both in the practice and in the education of artists, designers and architects and the important role the School played in this.
The Glasgow School of Art’s archives and collections include records and artefacts which relate to the School’s activities since its foundation in 1845. The archives comprise of GSA’s institutional records and a number of collections deposited by former staff, students and related organisations. The collections include examples of art, design, textiles, and architectural work by GSA alumni and former staff, including a large number of items by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and other staff and students whose work is synonymous with the Glasgow Style.
This event is a wonderful opportunity to view some Glasgow Style items and hear the stories behind them.
