Join us on the evening of Friday 01 May 2020 for the opening reception of the second instalment of Ways of Seeing as the exhibition finds it’s home for the next two months at the Tenement House, Glasgow.

Shutter Hub have teamed up with National Trust for Scotland, Glasgow Women’s Library, and the Trust’s Tenement House to create a two-part exhibition, Ways of Seeing, spotlighting Women and Photography in Scotland, in response to the National Trust for Scotland’s Second Morton Photography Symposium.

National Trust for Scotland’s major photographic collections feature many women as takers, collectors, preservers or subjects. These photographs show Scottish women in many lights – artist and model, wife and socialite, mother and sister, amateur and academic.  

The images of these women breathe life into our places and can help institutions like the Trust improve at putting women of all backgrounds at the centre of the stories we tell about our history. The aim of Ways of Seeing is to explore how photography is used to tell women’s stories.’ – Ben Reiss, Morton Photography Project Curator, National Trust for Scotland

 

Through Ways of Seeing, Shutter Hub brings together the work of women photographers in, and from, Scotland, and asks them ‘What are you looking at now?’

 

Ways of Seeing runs from 01 May – 30 June 2020 at the Tenement House and is free to view. Find the full exhibition details here: WAYS OF SEEING

When: 6-8pm, Friday 01 May 2020
