'A Place for the Work and the Human Being'

3. Stefan Kalmár

Trades Hall of Glasgow, 85 Glassford St, Glasgow G1 1UH

Thursday 16 May 2019

'A Place for the Work and the Human Being’ runs throughout 2019 and takes place in a range of venues, new and old, around Glasgow. The series explores the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today and speakers include artists, architects, curators and others.

Stefan Kalmár joined the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, as Director in January 2017 and is part of the artistic team for Manifesta 13 Marseille 2020. He was previously Executive Director & Curator at Artists Space, New York; Director of Kunstverein München; Director of the Institute of Visual Culture, Cambridge; and Artistic Director at Cubitt Gallery, London.

The event took place in the Saloon of Trades Hall of Glasgow, designed by Robert Adam in 1791–1794. The medieval cathedral aside, Trades Hall is the oldest building in Glasgow still in regular use for its original purpose.
