Domestic Bliss presents works from Glasgow Museums’ collection reflecting on the Gallery of Modern Art's history; as a former house, a Royal Exchange and civic space.
Observing how artists work with fine art, design and craft practices alongside social and political changes, this show explores domestic labour and feminism, public and private space, intimate relationships and historical narratives. We live in a consumerist world where home interior, lifestyle magazines and social media present flawless examples for us to emulate in our own lives. What happens if we question what is seen as ‘domestic bliss’, and whose stories are hidden or revealed?
