Dates and theme for third

Contemporary Visual Art announced.

11-27 April 2008

‘there is an admirably democratic feel to Glasgow international- this is a festival that’s about showcasing the city’s living, breathing and always vibrant visual arts scene from the grassroots up’ The Scotsman Critique

The third Glasgow international Festival of Contemporary Visual Art (Gi) will run from 11 – 27 April 2008, it was announced today. The Festival, which is set to become biennial from 2008, continues to provide a platform for the best in contemporary visual arts as well as commissioning new work. In 2008 it will once again be curated by Francis McKee.

Announcing the dates and theme of the 2008 Festival McKee said:
“Glasgow international has always extended beyond the established art spaces in the city to inhabit derelict or renovated lesser known sites. In 2008 this will continue as the festival spreads even further across Glasgow.”

He added:
“Appropriately, the theme of the third Gi will centre on ideas of public and private — examining the changing nature of public space, the evolving landscape of public and private art funding and the fluid boundaries of privacy in a world of converging mobile technologies.”

Further details of the Gi programme information will be announced in the coming months. For additional information visit and register your details to receive updates.

Gi is funded by Glasgow City Council, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, Event Scotland, The Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Enterprise Glasgow and is produced by Culture and Sport Glasgow.
