Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art is pleased to announce details of the programme for
its eighth edition, opening on 20 April 2018. Under the new direction of Richard Parry, who joins
the festival after serving as Curator-Director of the Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool, the 2018
programme comprises new works, site-specific commissions, exhibitions and events across over 70 venues and spaces in the north, south, east and west of the city.

As one of the UK’s largest and most influential art festivals, it showcases Glasgow as an important
location for the production and display of contemporary visual art. After seven successful editions,
it is a festival that has quickly established itself as an essential juncture in the international art
calendar. The aim is to showcase some of the best and most exciting work being made in Scotland
and across the UK, but also to introduce powerful international work to audiences in Glasgow.
