21 Revolutions Exhibition Preview
21st September, 2012 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Glasgow Women’s Library was launched in September 1991 and, with the support of thousands of donors, volunteers and dedicated workers has grown into a remarkable library, museum and archive collection with a notable history over two decades of delivering mind changing learning and events. September marks our 21st birthday and we’ll be celebrating with a range of exhibitions, readings, walks and talks.
Glasgow Women’s Library is a phenomenon: the sole resource of its kind in Scotland. We are celebrating our 21st birthday by commissioning 21 women artists to make new work inspired by GWL’s library, archive and museum artefacts. Artists including Claire Barclay, Kate Davis, Lucy Skaer and Karla Black have created work that draws on sources including campaign badges, knitting patterns, suffragette ephemera, album covers, feminist newsletters and lesbian dime novels. Come to this special preview night to celebrate and be inspired.
The 21 Revolutions exhibition will be on display in the Intermedia Gallery at the CCA on Sauchiehall Street, Tuesday to Saturday: 11am to 6pm. Please note CCA is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays. We have 2 Gallery Tours planned and three reading events to tie in with the exhibition too. There will be limited editions of the works available to purchase from Glasgow Women’s Library. Visit our online shop or speak to someone at the exhibition for a price list or more information.
