‘Disappearing Glasgow’ film screening and talk, Chris Leslie
Wed 21 Sept 2016, 7-8pm
Reid Auditorium

The skyline of Glasgow has been radically transformed as high rise tower blocks have been blown down and bulldozed. 30% of the cities High Rise flats have disappeared since 2006, communities dispersed across the city and Dalmarnock has 'been raised from the ashes' via the Commonwealth Games.

Does this Disappearing Glasgow herald a renaissance in the city? Photographer and filmmaker Chris Leslie is widely acknowledged as the most consistent chronicler of the city’s recent history.  His new book and exhibition - Disappearing Glasgow documents an era of spectacular change in Glasgow through photography and film.

This illustrated and screening by Chris Leslie will show short films from the project and raise discussion about the latest chapter in Glasgow's ongoing regeneration. The talk will be introduced by the book's editor Professor Johnny Rodger.
