The Glasgow School of Art Archives & Collections

The Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Collections are a rich resource for the study of art, design, architecture and art education. The holdings illustrate the history of the institution and the development of its teaching practices since it was established in 1845. You will enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the Reading Room and Collections Stores to get a sense of the breadth and depth of  holdings and learn how they are managed and used.

The Alasdair Gray Archive

The Alasdair Gray Archive was established in March 2020 after Alasdair Gray’s death in late December 2019. The Archive exists to enhance the reputation and understanding of one of Scotland’s most significant cultural polymaths of the 20th century, and through his legacy support others. When you visit the Archive it is like walking into Alasdair’s front room with all the objects & items that surrounded him, many of which feature in his work. All this material is held here for research & learning purposes. When you visit you will be able to handle original artworks, prints, publications, transcripts and ephemera.
