January is an exciting month if you like contemporary painting!
GoMA is teaming up with Glasgow School of Art for three events around the painting exhibition currently on in GoMA, A Picture Show, and they are all FREE you just have to book a place.
First up is a symposium hosted across both venues on Tuesday the 21st of January. The backdrop of this symposium is A Picture Show but the day will focus on wider issues within contemporary painting with key note speakers; artist Melissa Gordon and artist & curator at Norway’s National Gallery Gavin Jantjes. The day will start at GoMA in the morning and finish in the Mackintosh Lecture theatre in Glasgow School of Art in the afternoon. With a keynote speaker and panel discussion we hope the day will be engaging, challenging and thought provoking. A must for anyone with an interest in painting today.
