About

The Common Guild is a visual arts organisation based in Glasgow. It was established in 2006 and presents a dynamic, international programme of contemporary visual art projects, exhibitions, and events. These include gallery-based exhibitions at our current premises as well non-gallery, one-off projects, talks and collaborations. We are committed to presenting artists’ work in interesting and engaging ways and aim to offer access to world-class contemporary art experiences and discussions.

From 2008-2013 we worked in partnership with Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) on the ‘Art Fund International’ scheme, building a new collection of international contemporary work for the city. To date we have acquired works by Emily Jacir, Matthew Buckingham and Lothar Baumgarten, among others, many of which are regularly on display at GoMA. In addition to our own programme, The Common Guild was responsible for the direction of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art in 2010 and 2012.
