About Exhibitions >

The Glasgow School of Art Exhibitions Department curates an innovative year-round public programme that links into GSA staff research, teaching and learning, student experience, creative network, our communities, contemporary practice and heritage.

Our innovative programme of exhibitions, performance, seminars, talks, off-site projects, publishing initiatives and outreach, aims to explore the creative, social and educational nature of contemporary practice. The programme works across all disciplines and offers the public a glimpse of the life and outputs of the art school. GSA Exhibitions makes and supports creative opportunities to show staff research. As well as supporting departmental-led student exhibitions and events, GSA Exhibitions creates employability opportunities for students and feeds into professional practice. We also make exciting links to the rich heritage of The Glasgow School of Art and its collections. Supporting GSA activities working with our neighbours and wider communities, we contribute to creative engagement.
