Glasgow's Gilded Age 1864-1914: Glamour & Grit Conference
Dates:8.5.2015-8.5.2015

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.

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 verre au quotidien
Dates:24.4.2015-1.11.2015

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.

Helsinki
DECADES OF FINNISH ARCHITECTURE 1900–1970
Dates:27.3.2010-31.12.2020
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.
