Glasgow International from April 24 to May 10 2020
Trongate 103 (2nd Floor) G1 5HD Glasgow
Glasgow International 2020's theme is Attention. As much a method or approach as a theme, Attention asks us to consider how, where and in whom our attention is placed at a time of seemingly constant distraction through, for instance, social media and 24 hour news feeds. What are the opportunities for close looking both in the making and viewing of art, and how we attend to others whom we care for, as well as ourselves?
From 24 April to 10 May 2020, Glasgow International 2020 will be a special moment, a crescendo in the creative rhythm of the city, that opens up a space for relearning and recovering the stretches of time before, during and beyond it. Attention seeks to step outside the everyday and open up a new space for looking, thinking and spending time with the work of artists and to see afresh the intent behind the work.
