In GWL’s first solo exhibition by an international artist, Fiona Jack introduces a new series of works made in response to her Great Grand Aunt, suffragette Helen Crawfurd, which will be exhibited at the library less than a mile from where Crawfurd campaigned on Glasgow Green in the early 1900s. Over the past year, Fiona has studied Helen’s unrelenting crusade against injustice and, with friends and collaborators, Fiona has made a series of books, banners, sculptures and ceramics that respond to Helen Crawfurd’s legacy and the relevance of her critical perspectives today.

We will celebrate the launch of Our Red Aunt on Thursday 1st February from 6pm to 7.30pm during our Spring Programme Launch. The exhibition continues until Saturday 17th March and you can visit during GWL opening hours.

This project has been supported by The Elam School of Fine Arts PBRF fund and Creative New Zealand. With thanks to Re-Connect Glasgow for their support.
