Glasgow's Contemporary Art Collection Boosted by Art Fund International Scheme
On display for the first time is Lothar Baumgarten’s installation "Unsettled Objects", (1968–69). Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford.
LONDON.- Two purchases funded by the UK's leading independent art charity The Art Fund, through its £5 million funding scheme Art Fund International, are going on display for the first time at a new exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow.

The works by Lothar Baumgarten and Emily Jacir form part of the exhibition 'Unsettled Objects' which features pieces from Glasgow's collection of contemporary art, and runs from 10 December 2009 until March 2011.

On display for the first time is Lothar Baumgarten’s installation Unsettled Objects (1968–69) Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford. This work’s combination of characteristics of 20th century conceptual art with acute and insightful social critique sets the tone for the rest of the exhibition.

Emily Jacir’s From Texas With Love is a video accompanied by a selection of songs chosen by Palestinian people who were asked what they would like to hear if they could drive for an hour on an uninterrupted journey in complete freedom.

Andrew Macdonald, Acting Director of The Art Fund, said: "Glasgow’s bid for Art Fund International was to build an international context for their existing contemporary art collection and resonate with the best Scottish artists working today, and this display triumphantly reflects that ambition."

Art Fund International is a scheme set up by The Art Fund in 2007 to encourage a radical change in the scale and ambition of public collections of international contemporary art. Five UK museums were allocated £1million each to help build their collections; GoMA has acquired 12 works by four different artists. The Gallery of Modern Art established a partnership with The Common Guild, a Glasgow based visual arts organisation for contemporary projects, exhibitions and events to apply for the £1million award.
