Designing the New: Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style
Introduction & tour with Jo Briggs, associate curator of 18th & 19th century art, Walters Art Museum
Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) was a gifted architect and innovative artist whose beautiful and simple designs are loved all over the world. He was and remains an influential figure; the Mackintosh name is synonymous with the emphatic geometries of modern design. This is the first exhibition in the U.S. to feature the architect/designer’s innovative work and explore the larger circle of artists and craftspeople with whom he collaborated. Featuring furniture, posters, textiles, architectural drawings, books and ceramics, the exhibition highlights the process of making, the international influences and impact of the Glasgow style, and the Glasgow School of Art’s support and encouragement of women artists. Approximately 165 works, drawn from Glasgow’s most important collections, will be on display.
ASG is offering four opportunities to take this tour: October 9 at 1:30pm or 2:30pm and October 30 at 1:30pm or 2:30pm. Each tour is limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
