A Place for the Work and the Human Being

Posted on September 11, 2019

'A Place for the Work and the Human Being’ has been running 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.

The title is borrowed from the sub-title of a text by Swiss artist Rémy Zaugg (1943 – 2005), ‘The Art Museum of My Dreams’, written in 1986, translated into English in 2013 and now out of print.

Conceived to run in parallel with Common Guild's transition from 21 Woodlands Terrace to a new location for future exhibitions.

Jude Barber is a director at Collective Architecture. The 48-strong, employee-owned and controlled studio is founded on principles of creative freedom, equity and sustainability. In 2018
Collective Architecture was named 2018 Architecture Journal 'Architect of the Year'.

Together, the team has delivered several key civic and cultural projects around the UK including the new home for Collective, Edinburgh, at the City Observatory on Calton Hill, which was awarded a RIBA National Award 2019.
