The Common Guild is a visual arts organisation based in Glasgow. It was established in 2006 and presents a dynamic, international programme of contemporary visual art projects, exhibitions, and events. These include gallery-based exhibitions at our current premises as well as non-gallery, one-off projects, talks and collaborations. We are committed to presenting artists’ work in interesting and engaging ways and aim to offer access to world- class contemporary art experiences and discussions.

Exhibitions have included solo shows by some of the leading artists of our time, including Roni Horn, Tacita Dean, Wolfgang Tillmans and Roman Ondák. We have also produced projects with Ruth Ewan, Janice Kerbel and Phil Collins, and in 2013 we curated Scotland + Venice, the exhibition for the 55th International Art Exhibition, the Venice Biennale, with artists Corin Sworn, Duncan Campbell and Hayley Tompkins.

From 2008-2013 we worked in partnership with Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) on the ‘Art Fund International’ scheme, building a new collection of international contemporary work for the city, which included works by Emily Jacir, Matthew Buckingham and Lothar Baumgarten, among others, many of which are regularly on display at GoMA.
