Two sound works by Lucy Reynolds made in collaboration with MAP, were installed in The Glasgow School of Art and 5 Blythswood Square during Glasgow International 2014. These, alongside A Feminist Chorus film installation at Glasgow Women’s Library, created a compelling psychogeographical connection between three buildings with a history of supporting women artists working in the city.
For nearly one hundred years 5 Blythswood Square was headquarters of the Lady Artists’ Club (founded in 1882 and disbanded in 1971). In an ‘under the stairs’ telephone booth designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this recording of women artists living and working in Glasgow today, reading from the club’s unique programmes of exhibitions, tableaux and soirées, was open to visitors and to the current occupants of the building, a variety of business organisations.
4—21 April, 2014: performance and installations at Glasgow Women’s Library, The Glasgow School of Art ‘Hen Run’ and 5 Blythswood Square
