Glasgow’s Gilded Age
Dates:08/05/2015-08/05/2015

The conference will highlight those Glasgow designers who originally established the city's reputation at the time of the Aesthetic Movement and Mark Twain’s so called Gilded Age. Glasgow’s international reputation for design and manufacture sprang forth from the city's industries, as well as its educational institutions, and its influence spread across the globe through trade. This laid the foundation for Glasgow’s inimitable ‘style’.

We want to invite our guests on a unique sensory experience, considering both the glamour and the grit of industrial Glasgow. Our speakers will be discussing a wide range of topics, including; the interiors of Glasgow’s finest buildings, architectural ornament and stained glass within the city, and the movers and shakers of both the artistic and industrial spheres.

Other speakers include:

Prof. John Hume OBE, BSc ARCST, Hon FRIAS, FSA Scot; Chairman of the Royal Commission of Ancient and Historic Monuments, Patron of GCHT, and life-long supporter of Glasgow’s industrial and artistic heritage, will be speaking about the industries and the individuals who produced or commissioned art in Glasgow throughout the period.

Dr. David Mitchell: Dr. David Mitchell MSC IHBC ProfICME FSA Scot by day is Director of Conservation for Historic Scotland. Member of the Institute for Historic Building Conservation and the Institute of Cast Metal Engineers. Member of the English Heritage Advisory Board and CyArk, a US Non Profit to digitally document and share world heritage. Alumni of the US State Department Fellowship programme. Interested in ironwork conservation and the history of the industry in Scotland, particularly Walter Macfarlane and Co.

Dr. Robyne Erica Calvert: Robyne is a researcher in the visual culture of the 19th-21st centuries, with a particular focus on Charles Rennie and Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh. She holds a PhD in Art History and an MLitt in Decorative Arts & Design History from the University of Glasgow; and an MA in Art History from the University of Oregon.

Max Donnelly: Max Donnelly FSA is Curator of Nineteenth-Century Furniture at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. He has lectured and broadcast on aspects of nineteenth-century design, including for the BBC2 series The Genius of Design (2010). A contributor to several scholarly journals, his article on Vincent van Gogh and Daniel Cottier was published in The Burlington Magazine (September 2011).

Ian Gow: Ian Gow was appointed Curator of the National Trust for Scotland in 1998. He had previously been Curator of Architectural Collections at the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland. He is the author of several books and many articles on the decorative arts and architecture of Scotland.

Dr. Peter Burman: Dr. Peter Burman is an architectural historian who has been studying Webb for many years, organised the only conference ever held on Webb and his work, and has produced two major articles on him with more in preparation. He sees Webb as a understated but nevertheless major figure both in the early development of the British Arts & Crafts Movement and in the early history of a responsible British ‘heritage movement’. He is a Guardian of the SPAB and in Scotland he is currently chairman of the Falkland Stewardship Trust, whose responsibilities include a major 19th century country house, and a trustee and Archivist of Hopetoun House. He acts as an arts and heritage consultant across a spectrum of special places. Peter Burman will Chair the afternoon session of the conference. We believe that it is crucial to the promotion of Glasgow as a world city, and that through it we will be celebrating its vibrant artistic and industrial history, encouraging academic study of the period of this ‘gilded age’, and promoting Glasgow as a place for cultural and historic tourism.

Le verre au quotidien
Dates:24/04/2015-01/11/2015

Le musée Lalique raconte en 2015 l’histoire verrière de cette région, histoire qui a incité René Lalique à construire une manufacture à Wingen-sur-Moder en 1921. A travers des objets archéologiques, mais également des objets d’art, des tableaux, des plans… l’exposition Le verre au quotidien retrace cette épopée, s’intéressant tant à la question des techniques que des usages et rappelant comment le verre est devenu omniprésent dans notre quotidien.

The exhibition explores the history of building in the 20th century against a background of Finnish society, taking into account economic, political and technological developments. These factors have always influenced not only the volume of building but also the architectural shapes. Phenomena connected with construction are viewed from a broad perspective, and from larger to smaller; from urban planning to façade materials and interior decoration.
