Cellular World: Cyborg-Human-Avatar-Horror
Cellular World is a group exhibition featuring works by nine different internationally renowned artists that introduces the key thematic concerns of this year’s Director’s Programme.
We live in a world where technology plays a large and changing role in everyday life. In an age of social media, most of us will have avatars – versions of ourselves – online, prompting us to question how we are represented and how we represent ourselves. At the same time, we are at a historical moment where the future frequently appears as a precipice between utopia and dystopia.
The works on show explore questions of identity and individual and collective consciousness at a time of prolific social change and uncertainty, when reality can often seem more like science fiction.
Curated by Richard Parry, Director, Glasgow International.
Includes works commissioned by Glasgow International. Supported by Glasgow Museums, the Henry Moore Foundation and the Swiss Cultural Fund UK.

Invitations to Forms
An exhibition and seminar series examining ‘form’ in the narrative arts, based around materials curated by five writers and artists.
Visitors are invited to use the space at the Poetry Library at the Mitchell Library as a research centre, and attend seminars by the contributors, each of which will help compile a new vocabulary for exploring ‘the formal’ when approaching the narrative arts of the screen, stage and page.
Supported by Glasgow International, The Glasgow School of Art, the Piet Zwart Institute and The Mitchell Library
