Speaking Volumes is a collaborative project by Glasgow Women’s Library and My Bookcase for the world-renowned biennial festival of contemporary art Glasgow International of Festival of Visual Arts (GI) which showcases the best of local and international art.

For the 2016 edition of GI (8th to 25th April), My Bookcase and Glasgow Women’s Library have teamed up to create a space where reflection on the influential role of women in art is activated through the object of the book.

Exhibition Launch on Thursday 7th April

Participant creatives at this year’s festival have been invited to contribute their lists of recommended texts; texts by women that have played an important role in their life or practice. Thanks to the generous donations of publishers and individuals, books have been sourced and gathered to form the Speaking Volumes book collection.

Speaking Volumes continues 8th to 25th of April with associated conversation events.

Visit the exhibition webpage for more information about this project and details on the programmed series of conversations between international and Glasgow-based creatives which will revolve around the often eclipsed but influential and multifaceted role of women on art and creativity.
