Hunterian Gallery showcases Mackintosh architecture

Date Posted: 13/05/2014

A new exhibition at a Glasgow art gallery promises to offer a fresh look at familiar icon Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Mackintosh Architecture opens at the Hunterian Art Gallery on 18th July and runs until 4th January next year.

The Hunterian is home to the largest single holding of the work of Scottish artist, architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 – 1928) and The Mackintosh House, the reassembled interiors from his Glasgow home.

Mackintosh Architecture is described as the first major exhibition to be devoted to his architectural work, featuring over 80 architectural drawings from The Hunterian and collections across the UK.

Mackintosh Architecture is accompanied by a wide-ranging events programme including a symposium, talks, and tours. It will subsequently tour to RIBA London and RIBA Liverpool in 2015.

School trip organisers taking between ten and 20 students to the Hunterian should book an allocated time slot in advance of their visit to The Mackintosh House.
