Curators’ Tour: Stoop, Stoop, Stooping is Stoopid! & Domestic Bliss


Louise Briggs & Katie Bruce

Thursday 29 August 2019
1 – 3:30pm

Join Louise Briggs, Arts & Heritage Officer at Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover and Katie Bruce, Curator at Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) for tours of two shows currently on display across the city: Stoop, Stoop, Stooping is Stoopid! Domestic Bliss.

The tour will provide an expanded insight into the works on display and their meaning, as well as discuss themes relating to domestic labour and household activity that both exhibitions comment on and share.

Stoop, Stoop, Stooping is Stoopid! is a new collaborative project by Glasgow based artists Rachel Adams and Tessa Lynch. Both artists share an interest in elevating craft and household activity, often associated with women’s work, into the realm of art. For this exhibition they have used Frances Gabe’s invention, the self-cleaning house, as a framework by which to look at laborious making techniques and connotations of domestic mess.

Domestic Bliss is an exhibition that brings together works from Glasgow Museums’ collection to reflect on GoMA’s building history as a former house. With works on show by 27 artists, including Niki de Saint Phalle, Grayson Perry, Jessie M. King, Alasdair Gray and Jacqueline Donachie, the exhibition examines domestic labour and feminism, public and private space, intimate relationships and historical narratives.

The tour will begin at the Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover with taxis organised for both travel to GoMA and the return to House for an Art Lover.

Refreshments will be provided.

The event is free, however booking is essential. Book now via Eventbrite.

Free parking is available at House for an Art Lover.
