Ralph Rugoff

Goethe-Institut Glasgow, 3 Park Circus, G3 6AX

27 November 2014

As part of our 'Detours' series, The Common Guild presented a talk by Ralph Rugoff, Director of the Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre, London, and curator of the 2015 Lyon Biennial.

Rugoff has organised numerous exhibitions including ‘The Alternative Guide to the Universe; ‘Invisible: Art about the Unseen, 1957-2012′; ‘Jeremy Deller: Joy In People’; ‘Psycho Buildings: Artists Take On Architecture’; ‘The Painting of Modern Life; Just Pathetic’ and ‘Scene of the Crime’.

‘Detours’ is a series of talks introducing views from elsewhere by leaders in the visual arts. Speakers discuss the relationship between practice and context: how institutions and professional practice develop in response to specific situations, both geographic and cultural.
