Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art
Since its opening in 1966, the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art, situated in the heart of the city centre, has hosted many different contemporary art exhibits. The neoclassical building in Royal Exchange Square provides free-guided tours to allow visitors to explore the art of many famous artists including: Jim Lambie, David Hockney and Andy Warhol.
Home to the national collections of modern Scottish and international art from the 1900’s, the Gallery inherited a small number of 20th century works from the Scottish National Gallery when it opened. However, the majority of the collections have been collected in the past forty years, now compromising more than 500 items from the late nineteenth century to the present day, encompassing paintings, bronzes, works on paper, kinetic sculptures and video installations.
