Artist Cristina Garriga and her mybookcase.org initiative have created an installation for the Spheres of Influence II exhibition held in the Reid Gallery, Glasgow School of Art from 22 November 2014-25 January 2015. The exhibition provides an alternative reading of Alasdair Gray’s visual work, through the prism of others’ works, both historical and contemporary. The exhibition will include a series of Gray’s work from Alasdair Gray’s personal archive.
Cristina notes “Gray’s studio-come-library has inspired the My Bookcase installation. A bespoke wooden structure displays publications picked by Gray from his bookshelves, including texts first encountered in Riddrie Public Library when he was a child.”
GSA Library was thrilled to be able to contribute some books from its own collections as part of the installation.
