Exhibition and Website Mackintosh Architecture at The Hunterian in Glasgow – from 18 July 2014 to 4 January 2015


A fresh look at a familiar icon
Mackintosh Architecture at The Hunterian

The landmark research project into Mackintosh’s architecture, which began in 2010, has been led by the University of Glasgow’s Hunterian. It presents the first comprehensive evaluation of Mackintosh’s architectural career, available on a free access website, www.mackintosh-architecture.gla.ac.uk from 18 July. The richly illustrated site includes a catalogue of Mackintosh’s architectural projects and architectural drawings, over 3000 images, 350 biographies, timeline, interactive map, glossary and bibliography.

The site will be launched with the first major exhibition to be devoted to Mackintosh’s architectural work. Mackintosh Architecture will present over 80 architectural drawings from The Hunterian and collections across the UK, many never exhibited before, alongside specially commissioned film, models and rarely seen archival material.

Based on the work of the research project, the exhibition challenges the familiar view of Mackintosh as the isolated genius by presenting the wider context of his architectural practice, introducing the contractors, suppliers and clients who supported the delivery of the buildings, and outlining the building process, from initial planning permission to final inspection.

The exhibition is supported by three special displays which showcase Mackintosh’s skills as a draughtsman and designer, largely drawn from The Hunterian’s unrivalled Mackintosh Collection: Mackintosh Travel Sketches; William Davidson: Art Collector; and C.R. Mackintosh: ‘Begonias’

Exhibition Glasgow Style: Arts & Crafts from 1890-1930 at Blackwell in Cumbria – until 31 December 2014


The end of the nineteenth century saw Glasgow’s artists emerge as accomplished and talented crafts people. Born at the highly influential Glasgow School of Art and blending together the imagery of the Celtic Revival with influences from Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement, the term ‘the Glasgow Style’ was coined and came to represent this distinctive style developed in the west of Scotland.

This exhibition explores the unique skills of some of the leading makers associated with this period including Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Talwin Morris, Jessie Marion King, Ernest Archibald Taylor and Margaret and Frances Macdonald, showing the strength and prominence of Glaswegian Arts and Crafts.
