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.
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.
Other speakers include Dr. David Mitchell MSC IHBC ProfICME FSA Scot, Director of Conservation and Trustee of the Scottish Ironwork Foundation, Dr. Robyne Erica Calvert, Mackintosh Research Fellow for the Glasgow School of Art and Max Donnelly, Curator of 19th-Century Furniture at the V&A Museum.
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 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.
Organised by the Réseau Art Nouveau Network in the framework of the European project "Art Nouveau & Ecology" (2010-2015) supported by the Culture 2007-2013 programme of the European Commission, the exhibition comprises two identical concurrent exhibitions and has begun its journey to all partner cities in October 2013.
After Barcelona, the exhibition The Nature of Art Nouveau 1 will be presented in Ljubljana at the Narodni Muzej Slovenije, fifth step of its European journey, from 20 January until 19 April 2015.
This exhibition is free and bilingual Slovene-English.
YEAR COURSE: Gain a unique perspective on one of the most dynamic periods in the history of European art. Consider the relationship between the visual arts and the wider political and cultural context of the period and explore themes such as taste, patronage and the art market. This course encompasses Rococo, Romanticism, Impressionism and Art Nouveau. It not only covers the fine arts, such as painting and sculpture, but also design, architecture and popular visual culture.
The programme of lectures, together with close examination of important objects in the V&A’s collections, demonstrate the complex changes taking place in various branches of the visual arts over a 200-year period.
