Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art


Offline (formerly GAMIS) is a specialist arts organisation dedicated to the production and exhibition of artists’ moving image. They have just opened a new venue with screening facilities, exhibition, workshop space and artists’ studios – fulfilling a six-year ambition to create a dedicated space for time-based practice in Glasgow. Directors Lydia Honeybone and Shireen Taylor have been collaborating since 2018, holding screenings in local parks, on the streets and in abandoned warehouses. They are thrilled to welcome Glasgow International audiences to Offline’s new permanent home, a platform for ambitious time-based practice, experimental cinema and archival films.

The project is driven by a deep love of artists' moving image, collaboration and a shared desire to gather in the presence of 'a thousand kindred spirits holding their breath in the dark.' (B. Ruby Rich)
