29 May 2008

‘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.

As part of the 'Detours' series, The Common Guild presented Richard Flood, Chief Curator at the recently re-opened New Museum in New York. Prior to this Flood was chief curator at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.

The Trades Hall of Glasgow was designed by Robert Adam in 1791 — 94. The medieval cathedral aside, it is the building is the oldest in Glasgow still in regular use for its original purpose.

'Detours' is a collaboration with The Glasgow School of Art.
