Space: Gallery 4
Exhibition of work from Glasgow Museums’ collection, including major new purchases made via Art Fund International. Included was the seminal slide installation by Lothar Baumgarten, from which the exhibition took its name.
This was the first exhibition of several major acquisitions of works created by artists outside the UK. It featured installation, photography, sculpture and video from Glasgow Museums’ contemporary art collections. Unsettled Objects formed one of his studies of how several European ethnographic museums display objects and frame perceptions, and the ways objects have been uprooted from their original contexts and remain unsettled against western discourses.
