One week left for British Art Show 7

British Art Show 7 - Nathaniel Mellors, 'Alternative'

You have just over one week left to catch British Art Show 7 before it moves on to Plymouth for the final leg of its journey. 

The British Art Show is one of the most influential events on the cultural calendar.  In the past it has featured work from artists such as Damien Hirst, Sam Taylor-Wood and Chris Ofili, and in 2006 all four artists nominated for the Turner Prize were included in that year's programme.

The event is presented across four different cities every five years.  For 2011 it looks at work created in the period 2005 - 2010, with more that half of the selected artists premiering new work.  It is not a static exhibition that tours different cities, rather it evolves and develops across the different cities with several major new works to debut in each city.  The Glasgow leg of the show ends on Sunday, 21 August and has been a great success to date.

CCA, GoMA and Tramway have welcomed over 150,000 visitors so far. The show has been receiving rave reviews from visitors.

‘Very powerful’

‘I was inspired’

‘It is a really interesting exhibition. I must come back’

The Guardian's art critic, Adrian Searle, has said: ‘All this makes for the best British Art Show I've seen - and I've seen them all back to the late 70s.’

British Art Show only happens every 5 years and this is the first time it has visited Glasgow since 1990 so make this your priority for the week ahead!

Tue - Sun 11am - 5pm, admission free
