21 Revolutions: a GWL exhibition at the CCA

21 Revolutions: Two Decades of Changing Minds at Glasgow Women's Library

Friday 21 September - Saturday 13 October 2012
11:00am - 6:00pm: FREE

Glasgow Women's Library is a phenomenon, the sole resource of its kind in Scotland. To mark the Library's 21st birthday, it commissioned 21 women artists to make limited edition fine art prints inspired by its library, archive and museum artefact collections. Artists have created work that draws on sources including campaign badges, knitting patterns, Suffragette memorabilia, album covers, feminist newsletters and lesbian dime novels; a selection of these inspirational objects from the GWL collections will be included in the exhibition. The selected artists are:

Sam Ainsley / Claire Barclay / Ruth Barker / Karla Black / Nicky Bird / Ashley Cook / Delphine Dallison / Kate Davis / Fiona Dean / Helen de Main / Kate Gibson / Ellie Harrison / Elspeth Lamb / Shauna McMullan / Jacki Parry / Ciara Philips / Lucy Skaer / Corin Sworn / Sharon Thomas / Amanda Thomson / Sarah Wright
