Words and Pictures - Two Contemporary Works from Glasgow Museums, Scotland

Words and PicturesDouglas Gordon is known for making work that is physically and psychologically engaging. A Moment's Silence (for someone close to you) is a text work in which Gordon examines the practice of silence as an act of public and collective remembrance.

Roderick Buchanan's work explores questions of loyalty, identity and nationality via references to the structures of games and sports. Gobstopper documents a local tradition in which children attempt to hold their breath for the duration of an underground car journey through Glasgow's Clyde Tunnel.

Glasgow Museums is delighted to present these two works during the 2006 Commonwealth Games at NGV International, St Kilda Road.

Date: 3 March - 25 June
Time: During the Games 10:00am - 5:00pm (daily). Outside the Games 10:00am - 5:00pm (closed Tuesday)
Location: NGV International, St Kilda Road
