Seeing Things- A Spoon is the Safest Vessel Exhibition Launch

1st November, 2019 at 2:45 pm - 5:00 pm

Seeing things

Seeing Things is a group that meet up to see art, performances and cultural events put on by women across Glasgow and beyond. We think it’s more fun to go to see things together, and we usually have a cup of tea or coffee afterwards.  Our trips are always free.  We are always keen to welcome new people and it would be great if you could come along!


This group trip is to the launch of an exhibition at Glasgow Women’s Library. Below is more information about the event and how to book.

Why you should join us:

In this exhibition, a new collaboration between emerging artists Juliane ForondaKirsty Russell and Tako Taal explores the barely visible gestures and behind the scenes work that make up a hosting practice. Find out more at https://womenslibrary.org.uk/event/a-spoon-is-the-safest-vessel-exhibition-launch/ Following exploration of the GWL archive and other personal and public contexts, the artists’ work thinks about what supports us and how the different furnishings of hospitality are embodied in gestures of welcome.
