Her body remembered a night-blooming cereus, sweated industry and salt (what came near)

17th August, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This August, Travelling Gallery is launching a new exhibition by artist Lauren Printy Currie following a residency at GWL where the archive and collection served as a repository from which the artist drew material and inspiration.

Travelling Gallery is a contemporary art space inside a bus, which will tour the exhibition around Scotland.  Inspired by the GWL archive and offering a new take on the recording of women’s lives in Scotland, Lauren’s exhibition and the women’s library workshops promise a fresh and insightful look into women’s herstories. Lauren Printy Currie works in sculpture, writing and installation, creating assemblages that hybridize the material and psychological qualities of objects. As it tours, there’ll be chance for women of all ages to see the show, discover the mini GWL archive on board and take part in workshops focusing on themes of women’s heritage.

See the exhibition before it heads off on its journey and find out about its trip at our Autumn programme launch. After its launch, the exhibition will be in Glasgow and Edinburgh for two weeks. For more information on venues in August, see the Travelling Gallery website.

We are pleased to offer this exhibition and tour in partnership with the Travelling Gallery and with support from Outset Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund.


This exhibition is free to attend and there is no need to book. For opening times see the ‘Where to Find Us’ section of the website.
