Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow G1 3AH

Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is Glasgow’s major public contemporary art venue. Housed in an eighteenth-century neoclassical building in the centre of the city, GoMA plays host to a regular programme of temporary exhibitions including work by local, national and international artists.

Originally built as a townhouse for a wealthy Glasgow tobacco merchant who made his fortune through the slave trade, the building was reconfigured with the addition of Corinthian pillars and a cupola by architect David Hamilton to serve as the Royal Exchange. The mirrored pediment above the columns is by Niki de Saint Phalle and was commissioned for GoMa’s opening in 1996.
