Glasgow International, the citys curated and commissioning Festival of Contemporary Visual Art, is set to take place for a second year from Wednesday 19 April Monday 1 May 2006.

For 2006, Glasgow International is set to build on the success achieved in 2005 and will continue to provide an international platform for Scotlands thriving visual arts industry. Under the curatorship of Francis McKee, Glasgow International will host exhibitions that have been specifically developed for the festival in addition to further collaborations throughout the city that will reflect Glasgows capacity to exhibit internationally significant visual art.

Over 28,000 visitors came to the inaugural Glasgow International which was held between 21 April and 2 May, 2005. Glasgow International presented over 150 artists in 29 exhibitions, installations and artists events that highlighted new work either specially commissioned for the festival or brought to the UK for the first time. Featuring highlights such as The Jumex Collection, Barbara Kruger, Smith/Stewart, Jake & Dinos Chapman and Douglas Gordon, the 2005 programme demonstrated the commitment of artists and organisations across the city to create something truly substantial.

Glasgow Internationals 2006 full programme launch will be announced in February. To receive updates please register on the website www.glasgowinternational.org

Glasgow International is supported by Glasgow City Council, EventScotland, Scottish Enterprise Glasgow, Scottish Arts Council and in association with UZ Events and the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, under the auspices of Glasgow: Scotland with Style initiative.
