Drink in the Beauty is an exhibition of work from Glasgow Museums’ collection at GOMA which will open to the public on 4 June 2021. The show looks at landscapes and nature through art and encourages us to think about how nature is changing as we interact with it – positively and negatively. Today is Earth Day and in advance of this show we are publishing this blog post which talks about how the climate crisis is affecting animals and the landscape in Scotland.
In December 2019, Haemophilia Scotland and the GoMA Learning and Access team met to discuss the possibility of having an exhibition in GoMA’s CommonSpace. April 17th 2021 marked World Haemophilia Day and we had originally planned to launch the exhibition on this day. However, COVID-19 has meant that the exhibition will now launch on April 17th 2022 and, in preparation for this, over the next few months the GoMA blog will introduce the women involved in the project.
We’ve been pretty busy over at the GoMA Youth Group. We had our first workshop on Sunday the 28th March exploring Hal Fischer’s ‘Gay Semiotics’ through zine-making. We’ve also been reflecting on some important recent events – LGBTQ+ History Month and International Women’s Month. These events give us all some time and space to think about our role either within these communities or as allies. The GoMA is celebrating its 25th anniversary and has been reflecting on its history of LGBTQ+ programming since the museum opened in 1996.

Like all museums and galleries across the world our plans for 2021 are ever changing and responding to the extraordinary times that we are currently living in. But one thing that hasn’t changed is that GoMA will be 25 this year and that marks a moment in the history of the organisation that we felt we couldn’t miss, even though we may not be able to programme exhibitions and events or gather to celebrate in the way that we would have loved to for this year.
