Complementing the ‘Cinema City’ display at the Riverside Museum, this talk by Transport and Technology Curator Neil Johnson-Symington will showcase the various artforms linked to Glasgow’s ‘picture palaces’ from Glasgow Museums’ collections: featuring everything from hand-painted posters to architectural drawings, as well as decorative stained glass and cinema programmes.
Work by artists, including Joan Eardley, Andrew Hay and Douglas Gordon, for whom the cinema has been an inspiration, will also feature.
