The Invigilators

Event info

An exhibition of selected works from Mackintosh Museum invigilators working at The Glasgow School of Art. 

An invigilator's job is to sit in the gallery when the exhibition is open. They look after the work, speak to the public about the exhibits and enforce any house rules - 'no photography', 'no eating' in the space, 'don't touch'.  All are GSA graduates or students who have had much time in this role to consider the nature of this unique gallery space from the invigilator's chair.

With work by Laura Campbell, Michael Davis, Romany Dear, Federico Del Vecchio, Suzanne Dery, Mimi Deschamps, Samuel Devereux, Nils Guadagnin, Hyojun Hyun, Emily Ilett, Rachel Jones, Douglas Laing, Sophie Manhire, Theresa Moerman Ib, Emilia Muller-Ginorio, Anne Nyyssonen, Rosie O'Grady, Alistair Quietsch, Geneva Sills, Sally Webber and Petter Yxell.

The exhibitions department has put together a short film documenting 'The Invigilators,' featuring interviews with some of the artists and with GSA Exhibitions Director Jenny Brownrigg.
