Profile

Taking place every other year, and combining some of the characteristics of a conventional arts biennial with a more event-based experience, Glasgow International is a unique event in the international calendar.

With a dynamic approach to the presentation of contemporary visual arts practice,  Glasgow International offers both globally recognised and emerging Glasgow-based artists across the spectrum of the city’s art scene as a platform to show new work to both national and international audiences while also introducing the work of important international artists.

Since its inception in 2005 Glasgow International has brought together the key organisations in Glasgow’s diverse artistic community, presenting unique events and special commissions rooted in the achievements of the local artistic community, while drawing on important international developments in contemporary art.
