In 2016, the first ever photograph of the famous Glasgow photography museum was published.
The exhibition “Glasgow Photography and the Making of the Modern British” shows the evolution of the museum’s collection over the past century.
The images, which include works by Charles Darwin, David Bowie, Marilyn Monroe, Sir Francis Drake and Stephen Hawking, tell the story of Glasgow’s emergence as an international hub for the arts, culture and design.
The exhibition will run at the Glasgow Museum of Art until 2023.
According to a Glasgow City Council statement, the exhibit will highlight the history of Glasgow and will be open to the public on Saturday.
“This is the first time that Glasgow has ever been recognised by a major museum in the world for its unique artistic heritage and will mark the first visit to the museum by a visitor from outside the city for almost 100 years,” the statement said.
The city of Glasgow was established in 1218, and has an area of 6,400sq m. “
It will also help to illustrate the growing importance of Glasgow as a cultural centre and the importance of local artists and their works to the city’s creative future.”
