Rose Frain Survey Works
7th September - 5th October
Visual artist Rose Frain is publishing a survey book of her work in September 2019. Glasgow Women’s Library is the first of three UK venues to launch the publication, with each event accompanied by an exhibition showing selected works and new works from the artist’s extensive practice.
Rose Frain Survey Works, Saturday 7th September to Saturday 5th October, visit during GWL opening hours
Rose Frain will be installing ‘intimations and interventions’ from her oeuvre and new works throughout the library. From ‘Sissy Graffiti’ to ‘This Time in History, What Escapes’, Frain’s work cites critical moments and social equity.
“Rose Frain has a fascinating oeuvre that covers several decades. The project is extremely relevant in the context of significant women artists and apt too since the themes of her work are so acutely relevant today.”
– Adele Patrick, GWL
The book Rose Frain Survey Works features 18-20 of the artist’s major projects, citing stylistic and conceptual developments; with critical essays, full chronology and bibliography. It is edited by Jane Warrilow, designed by James Brook, and published by Sissy Graffiti. Join us for the Book Launch and Preview on Saturday 7th September, from 2pm to 4pm.
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. Our gallery spaces are located across multiple parts of the building. Please ask at Front of House for more information or directions when you are here. Sometimes our programme of events, or venue hires, may limit access to particular parts of the building. Although we always do our best to ensure you can visit the full exhibition when you are here, if you are making a special trip out and want to check which areas are open, please call us in advance on 0141 550 2267. We always ensure there is full access to exhibitions on our Warm Welcome Saturdays, and Mondays are also usually quieter with fewer events taking place.
This exhibition has no audio content.

We have accessible toilets and all the bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral. Our larger Events Space is fitted with an induction loop.
